bio

A creative thinker, I am a bit of an introvert. But once you get to know me, well that's a different story entirely. The youngest of four children, I am a fast learner, with good analytical skills and an insatiable love for storytelling- specifically writing and filmmaking. 

Crawling through a trench of mind-, from secondary school bullying, low self-esteem and anxiety, I spent five of my formative years, in university.

But you see, what those Ph.D. professors don't teach you, is the true nature of working in the field. After two years of abject misery, working in a job I found no drive or joy in, I resigned and decided to develop and pursue my passion and love for the arts. 

Growing up in a family full of creatives, I never saw what was staring me right in the face. But after a near bought with death and depression, I made the decision to be happy. Music truly is the food of love. Music is the gateway drug to alleviate oneself from pain. And with my music taste (thanks dad) ranging from jazz, blues to reggae, classic rock, RnB and hip-hop, I soothed my soul.

Over the years, several stories of affection and heartache slowly began to creep into my subconscious. So, with an incredible love for screenwriting, film, television, mixed in with an 'I don't give a ' attitude, my dream is to share my stories and so many other untold African stories, with the rest of the world.
