I am a film maker by passion. I have been involved in various projects serving at different capacities including Director, Editor and Director of Photography since 2014.
I am also one of the directors and founders of Sertified Image, a company that specializes in film, motion graphics and photography.
I’ve always loved stories since I was a kid. I spent time watching movies religiously always fascinated by the way they are made. The interest to dive in the film industry fully cropped up while I was in campus in my second year.
I got a platform to learn and be part of the weekly productions of short videos at a community called The Journey which would screen every Friday. With this, my interest in the field grew and I decided to switch the course I was enrolled in at the time for one in Film. Luckily I got support from the people around me.
In the course of my studies, we started a company with three other creatives who shared a similar vision to mine hence the birth of Sertified Image. Since then, we have done several short films and documentaries as a unit and also in collaboration with other creatives in the field. We have also done other jobs in the corporate sector.
I find film to be a powerful medium through which we tell stories, preserve culture and also expand the boundaries of reality.
To become a world renown commercial film company producing African content.
To collaborate with creatives in the film industry to tell Kenyan stories through film.
