Director, Internet Development


At the Internet Society, I serve as the Director of Internet Development. In this role, I am engaged in several projects related to technical capacity building, building communities of practice, and Internet measurements.
I bring more than 17 years of experience in the tech space, starting at the KENET (the Kenya Education Network Trust), where I served as the network manager responsible for IP network design, training, network operations, and network services, including managing DNS Services, e-mail, and web hosting on open source platforms.
Outside of work, I serve as an instructor at various NOGs and NRENs in Africa. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Systems from USIU-Africa (Kenya), an online certificate on “Learning to Teach Online”, and a Master’s Degree in Information Security from the Lulea University of Technology (Sweden). I am also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP by ISC2) and a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM by IAPP).

I am based in Nairobi, Kenya.
