Distinguished Technologist, Internet Growth

Biography

I'm the Distinguished Technologist for Internet Growth at the Internet Society. I lead the Internet Growth portfolio, which focuses on measuring, building, and extending a resilient Internet to those who need it the most. I'm also a member of the Internet Society's executive leadership team and provide expertise to develop new and forward-looking areas of work.

Prior to joining the Internet Society in April 2008, I served as the Administrative Manager at the .KE ccTLD registry (KENIC) and as president of the Africa Top Level Domain Association (AfTLD). At the same time, I volunteered my technical expertise to support the growth of the Kenya Internet Exchange Point (KIXP) and served on the board of the Technology Service Providers Association of Kenya (TESPOK). I currently volunteer as a member of the KENIC ICT committee, providing technical guidance to the management and board.

I have a passion for developing strong Internet technical communities, empowering local champions, and promoting local and cross-border collaboration. These are the elements that underpin a resilient Internet ecosystem.

I'm based out of Nairobi, Kenya.
