ABOUT ME

“ w.png

       I am creator of stories- both fiction and non-fiction. A poet and social researcher, with a background in Anthropology and music. I grew up amongst the trees in the Mau Forest but I've lived in England for enough years to call myself a diasporic African. My work is centred on identity, place, race and wellbeing.
