My Work

Welcome to my website. I share my thoughts on travel, tourism and the Malawi entrepreneurship ecosystem. And few other thoughts that cross my mind from time to time.

Over the past 20 or so years I have designed and delivered tech, brand communication and training solutions across multiple platforms, mediums and formats. I have worked for a couple of tech firms and with clients in the private and public sectors, non-profit organisations and boutique companies.
