Fine arts is one of the subjects he enjoyed in secondary school.Later he studied heritage management at the University of Dar es Salaam. And then worked in two local museums: in Bagamoyo and Mbeya, before starting working fulltime as a freelance photographer. All this has deepened his appreciation for the history and culture of the region. His photography work seeks to share stories and moments in the region.

With his most famous sayings:
“I am who I am, of which I don’t know much of, or rather each day I am discovering more what I am”
