My eternal curiosity has yielded unique opportunities to meet and collaborate with amazing people around the world. I started making films on the African continent as a 15 year-old. Since then, I have been translating my passion for creativity and cultural production into business experience.

In 2012 my friend Phil Sandick and I launched African Lookbook, representing over 30 African designers in the United States. In 2013 I was asked to open and run the continent's first design museum in Johannesburg's Maboneng Precinct. In 2016 I began in the first cohort of the African Leadership University School of Business MBA program in Kigali, Rwanda.

As an independent consultant, I work with companies to understand their growth opportunities in niche markets on the African continent.
