“My journey is inspired by art, music and culture. Ever since I started on this path the lead gene was to create platforms and programs that spotlight young creative people, places and business. My exposure to the creative sector in Africa, Zimbabwe specifically, was so culturally enriching it changed the trajectory of my professional ambitions. Through everything I’m involved in, I try to increase the visibility of diverse talent ,promote the development of arts and culture ,while creating a link to the global creative world.My time in the US exposed me to the value of arts and entertainment and the benefits of a functioning creative economy. I realized I wanted to be part of making the sector great again and I’ve been trying to play my part ever since.” _________
