Passions/interests

I’m really passionate about technology and bringing ideas to life.

I founded my first company when I was 15 and also became the youngest inventor (wallet made out of a juice carton).

I’ve been organising hackathons in Africa with Garage48, worked with Europe’s largest startup accelerator Seedcamp and filmed for national broadcaster.

After creating an industry first interactive video CV, I joined as a product manager in AOL, mainly focusing on new technologies in the measurement space.

Most recently joined as the first employee at Maker Studios international (part of The Walt Disney Company), responsible for international product and strategy.
