They/Them

I am trans and queer and I am a user experience researcher and designer.//

I have been part of the innovation space in Kenya since 2014. At this rate it is probably going to be my life’s work. A lot of young people here are using technology, entrepreneurship and new business models to solve problems in fundamental areas such as health and nutrition; education access; livelihoods and mitigating poverty; social services, government delivery and welfare. My work is to make sure that innovators are able to think of the beneficiaries, the users and other human beings while building and distributing the intervention.
