Engineer + Film-maker
"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself. (Rumi)"
I have a BASc in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo in Canada and a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) in Documentary Film-making from the Red Sea Institute of Cinematic Arts in Jordan.
I love traveling (who doesn't!), films (watching and making them!), and learning languages (I wish I could do this full-time!).
As a systems/design engineer, I helped create new health monitoring systems for a Canadian NGO (MEDA) in Tanzania and later acted as a consultant in Canada on projects based in Nicaragua, Peru, and Zambia. Most recently, I've been working to help grow a social enterprise in Tanzania, called Ongeza Tanzania Ltd.
I now live and work in Arusha, Tanzania.
