SUMMARY

I am passionate about the future of technology and it's endless possibilities. Today I am working to see this happen. I innovate, I solve problems and I use technology to make life better. It's the spark of technology that lights up the life in me. I am always seeking opportunities to work and upgrade myself, as well as giving back to the community especially with young women, girls and children. I am an entry-level data scientist who takes pride in using R to analyze, build visualizations, and models that translate data points into business insights. Eager to apply the same knowledge to real-world business problems. I also have experience developing Mobile Apps on Symbian Windows and Android. As an individual, I'm self-confident. You’ll find me creative, funny and naturally passionate. I’m a forward thinker, which others may find inspiring when working as a team.

What I Do ?

Currently, I am a Software Engineer At VituMob. I am responsible for maintaining the Chrome Extension that helps Kenyans shop from tons of online retailers in the US and the UK. I make the checkout process with the VituMob extension seamless, where customers choose what they would like to buy, checkout with VituMob's Software and pay via mobile money or card and get their packages delivered to their doorstep.

When not working professionally, I lead the Developer Circles Community for the Nairobi Chapter which is a Community of Software Developers supported by Facebook. We help developers come together both online and offline via events to learn, code, collaborate and build on top of the Facebook platform but not limited to Facebook Technologies.
