I am a B.A. (Development Studies with IT) degree holder from Maseno University.  I was first involved with AMI during the 2015 Kenyan Maths Camp as a volunteer. I later joined the team full-time in 2016, and I have since then been engaged in several fascinating initiatives.

A significant part of my involvement at AMI is in expanding and maintaining AMI's digital presence on Twitter, Facebook and Twitter. This has been through posts, blogs and news pieces about the different initiatives that AMI is involved.  I have also been part of the AMI documentation team that creates, edits and produces tutorial video guides on how to use softwares like R-Instat and climsoft. I have also been involved in organising workshops for students and civil society actors from Tanzania and Uganda on how to use the R-Instat procurement data.

I am also involved in the Digital Communities, Math Clubs and Math Camps Initiatives because I believe in their goal of teaching people to use technology to improve their livelihoods. In line this objective, I am also currently involved in bits of work that include setting up an Agro-Ecological Hub at Manor House Agricultural Centre, Kitale. The project aims to bring together scientists working in this research area and farmers interested in using agroecological farming practices. So far, I have been involved in conducting focus group discussions amongst farming communities in different counties in Western Kenya, and I am interested in working more on this initiative as it proceeds along.

Besides enjoying working on the AMI initiatives, I am also an avid cyclist, photographer and hiker.
