I've been in the community development field since the age of 14 when I started working as a volunteer at an NGO. Ever since God has graced me to travel extensively and I believe that my destiny has been shaped. My zeal is to come alongside people, specifically young men who have lost their way and who are in the gutters, to get back on their feet again.

Through my journey I've been blessed to qualify myself within the following fields:
- Community Development Practitioner
- Paralegal
- Substance Abuse Counselor
- Emergency Services Chaplain
