I am a social entrepreneur, educational consultant, community and international development practitioner. I am passionate about causes that relieve human suffering. I work with individuals, organizations and communities to use strength based approaches to co-create and develop solutions to challenges they face.
Professional and research interests
Over the years I have been privileged to start and lead organizations that directly co-create solutions to daily life challenges. The aim of my work is to promote self determination and creation of innovations that are sustainable, scalable and replicable in-context.
Since 2012, I have actively worked to establish and promote early childhood networking as platforms for sharing knowledge, practice and advocacy strategies for the wellbeing of children and their communities.
My lived experience as a Black man informs my work in social justice initiatives that revolve around UBUNTU (I am because we are), UMOJA (Unity) and Harambee (moving together).
