I was born and raised in Kenya. I grew up around a farm where my mother grew coffee and also around my dad who owned a restaurant in the main city. I came to the U.S for college where I earned a BA in Political Science at Le Moyne Owens College and a double MA in Medical Anthropology and Urban Anthropology from the University of Memphis. I later studied in a Natural Chef Program at The Center Of Green Studies in Pittsboro. I now work as an urban farmer, organic chef, social commentator and food activist in the Raleigh/Durham area in North Carolina. Informed by life around peasant farmers and food experience during my young days around my father, I travel widely talking about issues of food, politics and culture.
