I was born, raised, and educated in Rwanda.
My story begins with the dreams and aspirations of my parents — both of whom were killed during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi — and goes up to where I am headed. I’m the last born in a family of five and I was brought up to be some kind of free spirit. Sadly enough, I don’t remember many of my childhood stories, so I’ll tend to dive towards creating memorable stories every day.
I live in Kigali — with two dogs, Max (m) and People (f).
My philosophy and a bit more.
My philosophy is centred on the value of reason, so learning is perhaps the most important thing in my life right now. Ever since I was a young boy, the question why was an essential element of my thinking process. I have grown to become a passionate rationalist and cherish the power of individual stories and what makes real progress. Just like some of my colleagues, I took a personality test (in most cases, I did find it surprisingly accurate): I am an Assertive Architect.
I’m a keen observer, thinker, and learner.
I have grown to learn to understand and look at issues from deep perspectives.
My more-than-ten years of experience working in youth literacy, content creation, and digital media has provided me with an opportunity to navigate patterns of innovation — and critical thinking.
I used to like to joke that I possess a
self-proclaimed PhD in autodidacticism (meaning self-directed learning) but I kind of stopped since the day I realised how much people don’t get irony.
Let’s work together
I’m a thinker, a writer and editor, and a social innovator. If you’re looking for a person to help you create or improve something — along the lines of education, learning, the web, media, and Rwanda — then I’m the guy you’d want to talk to.
I’m a writing coach, a content editor, a critic, a
quick web designer, and an education strategist.
And so much more.
Oh, one last thing: I don’t have a typical CV document to share but I hope I can make one soon. (But don’t wait for it.)
