Like most actors in Nairobi, my acting career started out on stage; church plays and musicals as a college student. Slowly but surely, my passion for the craft led me to pursue a career as an actor on a full-time basis. And after leading roles in shows like ‘Jane & Abel’, ‘Love 101’ and ‘Lies That Bind’. My first taste if film came on the cast of ‘Katikati’; A Ginger Ink and One Fine Day film that premiered at The Toronto International Film Festival 2016 and went on to win the . It also won the AMVCA Best East African Film 2016 as well as Best Film at CinemAfrica festival in Sweden. I am also part of the lead cast of ‘NEOPHOBIA’ a short film that was shortlisted to screen at the 2017 in France. The only African film at the festival.
At 28 years old, I like I’m just getting started. I have a vision of pushing the boundaries when it comes to Kenyan and African films as a whole. My passion and drive to be better with every project I’m involved in has been key to my growth as an actor. I’m always ready to work with like-minded individuals who wish to see Kenya’s film industry soar. Currently, I’m anticipating the release of ‘Poacher’ (short); an action drama slated for release later this year which has already been selected at the World of Film International Festival and Just4Shorts Hollywood Festival 2018. - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8360146/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2
‘18 Hours’; a feature film about the state of Kenya’s emergency healthcare system recently scooped three awards at the ‘Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards’ 2018 (AMVCA) including Best East African Film and Best Overall Film. Away from the screen, I am proud to be associated with the ‘Too Early for Birds’ theatre outfit.
