Creative Enterprise Bio
I started off as a poet in 2013 then decided to give my words a voice on stage through performance poetry and spoken word. Spoken word and performance poetry didn’t quite work out for me as I am more of an introvert.

Concurrently, I also started blogging at hingamwonjoria.wordpress.com. But it was in 2015 when I attended the Kenya Scriptwriters Guild pioneer workshop and found a home in telling stories through the screen. I have written several kikuyu screenplays that have been produced and aired on Inooro TV. I’m also working on producing my first two short films. The first one, Wounded Rose, is on domestic violence and the second, The Lost Bible, will be a coming of age story of a boy who is almost lured into crime.

Vision
A generation that sees beyond the superficial and takes action to uproot the ills in our society.

Mission
To tell written and audio-visual stories that encourage and trigger people to think independently and broadly beyond cultural and societal expectations while caring for each other as humans.
