I am a visual storyteller, having studied journalism at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication, with specific focus on Film Production. The ability to bring visual stories to life excites me a lot, this passion leading me to working with leading media houses in Kenya, this includes a stint with the national broadcaster KBC and K24 TV, as a camera operator and video editor. Most recently, I worked for the leading media development organization in Kenya, Internews Network, as TV trainer where I was responsible for training and mentoring of journalists and assisting journalists with production of high quality, factual stories. I have since gained valuable experience by being exposed to technical, theoretical and practical aspects of journalism, always being driven by a strong desire to effect change in the world by producing visually strong, compelling and factual stories. I have over time used my expertise to tell different stories in multimedia that connect with the audience in an emotional honest way, stories that have in turn had a great impact in the communities they were told from. I currently work as a freelance Multimedia production specialist, a videographer, a photojournalist and a media consultant and also a partner at Zulani Ltd, a digital media company (

    When Miriam Kasumuni’s husband died of a heart attack after losing nearly his entire herd of cattle to drought, he left behind 6 wives and 32 children. Miriam had to step up and become the breadwinner for the family. Traditionally, women from the pastoral ethnic Maasai community were not allowed to work outside of the home since that was considered the role of men. This short documentary looks at how climate change has disrupted the traditional way of life for pastoralists in Kenya, fueling a revolution in gender roles.
