I’m a creative technologist. Which is just a fancy way of saying I don’t code, but simply work with amazing people to design technology solutions to business problems. I’m educated as a computer scientist, trained as a business information technologist, with 11 years experience in digital marketing and innovation. I’m 31 years old, married, and blessed with two daughters (I also own a machete).
I’m presently the Assistant VP for Digital & Innovations at Barclays Bank of Kenya. The long title allows me to support the executive team in ushering in a new era of digital banking and marketing for the connected age. My day is filled with buzz words like Audience planning, Fintech, Social Media, Design thinking, Artificial Intelligence, Content Marketing, ChatBots, Mobile, Internet of Things et cetera.
