My passion for acting began when I played Joseph the father of Jesus in kindergarten. The euphoria is gave me while in high school pushed me to pursue it professionally in 2010 and would find myself going for countless auditions.
It all begun in kindergarten when I played Joseph the father of Jesus. Then got a chance to do more of acting in high school. I would say, the joy that I got from acting made me want more, and finally in 2010 I started doing it professionally. I went for many auditions to the point I almost believed acting wasn’t meant for me.
This was the year of finding myself, I worked part-time and in my free time I would do Tv shows, theatre and learnt about voice acting.
2014 – 2015
My year of rebirth, I decided to get back into the film industry fulltime and my first audition and landed my first main role in the TV series Pendo. I expanded my skills as a director, I shadowed my director in most of the TV shows I worked on and directed a few theatre plays.
I call this my learning year , my acting skills was challenged by a role I played as a Muslim detective in a TV show called (K.E.R.U) this helped me learn a lot and grow my skills. I was also doing a lot of casting so my life on set was a mix of many different roles.
A very busy year for me as I worked on 4 different sets throughout the year. My experiences would shine through certain roles like on the set of 18 hours because it was a true story from a paramedic in Kenya.
This year I play the lead role and the story is about a man who is being forced to inherit the wife of his late brother. The show is called My Two Wives, the mix of comedy and drama on this show is guaranteed to keep your eyes glued to the screen. I am also a nominee in the Kalasha Awards for The Best lead actor in TV Drama.
