About Me

Having a background in journalism and political science, I've combined my two interests by working at media production company Africa Interactive from 2006 to 2014. In 2012 - 2014 I lived in Nairobi, Kenya, where I have successfully set up a subsidiary branch in one of Africa's most important hubs.

In July 2014 I joined VC4Africa. I've been always passionate about supporting starting entrepreneurs in Africa to realize social impact in countries with enormous unemployment rates among their young populations. At VC4Africa I am responsible for different projects we work on with our partners.
