I am Kenyan Wildlife Artist and Safari Guide. My childhood was a life of self-amazement in a world full of life and endless explorable wonders. I joined the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya and the young ornithologists club (the junior branch of the UK’s RSPB) in high school. I found it most fascinating to learn bird names in English and Latin, through the inspiration of our club patron and teacher I quickly developed a passion for birdwatching. We frequently visited the museum and went out on camping trips to learn our birds in the outdoors. Through these outings, I met Don Turner the proprietor East African ornithological safaris and co-author of the birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania on several occasions leading serious birders in the field, I thought that this would be a great job. After completing college, I was employed at Don’s company now known as Origins Safaris, as a resident naturalist; first at the Mara River Camp and later in several other camps where I spent my free time drawing and painting
I expanded my wildlife knowledge through visiting scientists and researchers in the smaller creatures, often ignored in the shadow of big game, I am very lucky to have two species named after me. A spider and a Millipede. I Later became a full time mobile safari guide with Origins Safaris and settled in Nairobi where I now work from. I am a passionate all-round guide with a Gold Level accreditation by the Kenya Professional Guides Association (KPSGA), where I am the current chairman.
