About.

INSPIRED BY COMMUNITY.

Our families, our societies, our countries are faced with increasing challenges every day. Challenges present big opportunities. I believe that we can make the most of those opportunities through building strong teams that grow into effective communities. Within these communities, we can grow a culture of solving problems.

Building communities is at the core of what I do. Surrounding yourself with community introduces wider credibility and deeper trust. This brings the accountability necessary for innovation to flourish and transform our society.

TRACK RECORD MATTERS.

I take responsibility for the success of my teams, projects, and organisations. I provide leadership across Africa’s technology innovation ecosystem. I work in different sectors and relish new challenges.
01. LEADERSHIP.

I have worked as CEO and COO at the iHub helping build it into the best African support system for entrepreneurs and innovators. I founded and run an operations management company and held senior leadership roles in the non profit sector. I build strong teams that can develop and execute a plan effectively.

02. STRATEGY.

I serve on the Boards of high impact, pan African organisations such as Afrilabs, a network organization of over 2000 innovation centers across 46 African countries, Africa Technology and Creative Group (ATCG) a coalition of tech and creative professionals whose mission is to support the creation of frameworks for the successful implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), Creatives Garage, a multi-disciplinary collective space for Creatives, to help them think strategically for the long term, share ideas, collaborate, learn and gain market accessibility and Missing Child Kenya, a community led initiative that leverages on technology and crowdsourcing for the search, trace, and reunification of missing, displaced, lost & found children.

03. MENTORSHIP.

I mentor women to perform excellently with integrity at what they do. I have served as the Team Manager for the Kenya Lionesses, the national women’s rugby team throughout a World Cup qualification campaign. I founded the iHub Women in Business program, which aims to grow the number of socially and economically empowered women entrepreneurs who run women-owned/women-led sustainable businesses working in the technology sector.
