About Me

I am a really good looking, nappy haired,5'8'' Male Copywriter and Creative Director. When not making good ads and online campaigns, I produce good jingles and good marketing experiential and events that are hard to ignore. I have mad respect for clients that respect their brands and those that elevate those brands.

I have found so much joy in combining the 26 letters of the alphabet to influence and persuade different audiences. For over 9 years, I worked with almost 20 madly talented Creative and Art Directors from Australia, Canada, USA, South Africa, Austria, Brazil, Ghana at Scanad Kenya, BF 34, JWT Kenya, Squad Digital, to become the copywriter I am.

Then I got a chance to lead my own team of talented creatives at BF34, Mediamax Networks, Scanad, House of Panache, Ghetto Sanaa and I have not looked at creative business the same way since.

AT A WORK PLACE, I VALUE:

Sound Leadership, Integrity, professional Ethics, elaborate Communication system, Training, Teamwork and Recognition.

IF I’M TO GET THE JOB MY OBJECTIVE:

I’ll find relevant insights to help me deliver it through simple brutality of thought.
