I was born in Uganda and grew up in Kenya. I studied photography, then post-graduate film and television at the Royal College of Art in London. My professional life has been spent making films and television documentaries for Channel 4, FIVE, the BBC, Discovery, National Geographic, WGBH Boston/NOVA, History Canada. My work means I'm well travelled including time spent in war zones. I'm also an established and published photographer with a special interest in music from all over the world, landscapes and portraits. I’ve been taking photographs since I was 16 when I set up a darkroom in our house in Nairobi, Kenya.

I speak English, French & Kiswahili.
