My birthday is on the 5th of February, seed of the shores of Lake Nakuru, in Kenya. I’m a proud citizen of the 254 and live with the single purpose of making a positive difference in the lives of everyone that experiences my craft. I was born and brought up in Kenya, and I’m a permanent resident of Nairobi; there’s no place like home!.
I’m an alumnus of Egerton University, a Wasp to the core! This is where my romance with rugby began and forever continues. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Community Development. Here stands Mr Egerton University 2009! Through my college life, I had a stint with Egerton’s travelling theatre (Zakita), but my shot into mainstream performance art came through Godfrey Odhiambo (the malooned star). Who would’ve thought a chance meeting in a Matatu (public bus) would be the start of a career in acting!?
I wouldn’t quite say that I have a favorite character/role I’ve played as. In all honesty, every role prepares you for the next one. I nurtured my skill in acting at The Kenya National Theatre, Nairobi, Working with such outfits as Jawabu Arts, 4sight, S.P.A. among others. I am a member of the Kenya Actors Guild, an organization of entertainers in Kenya. The entertainment industry is quite a labyrinth of challenges and experiences, and through it all, quite a few people have shaped my career. Worth mentioning include: Dorothy Ghetuba, Ndanu Kilonzo, Godfrey Odhiambo, Ainea Ojiambo, Derrick Asseto, Lowry Denzel Odhiambo, Lenny Juma, Lizz Njagah, Nini Wacera and Victor Gatonye
