Profile Biography 
I love science and I value education. I have a passion for Formula 1 car racing.....
I grew up with a love for math and science with the support of my parents who were educators and encouraged us to work hard and reach our goals in life.

My college education journey started with completing my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nairobi in Kenya. I then did an MPhil and Ph.D. at the University of Lancashire, U.K, in the Department of Built Environment.

I worked as an engineering consultant for 8 years in Southern Africa. One key project I was involved with was the airport extensions, soccer stadia and underground high-speed train network, in preparation for the 2010 FIFA soccer world cup games in South Africa.

I currently live and work in Seattle. I work at the University of Washington, College of Engineering as Director of the STARS Program. I previously worked at Bellevue College where my role was Associate Director (STEM Liaison) and Adjunct Math professor. I worked primarily with our STEM to Stern program.

The goal of the program is to promote continued enthusiasm for STEM fields by way of connecting students to industry scientists and mentors, helping students plan their career path, acquire professional skills in communication, learn research skills and to be each other’s resource. The program aims to engage students in real-world inquiry projects as early as possible in their studies to help maintain their interest in STEM career pathways.

My mission in life is to help students reach their full potential, particularly those disadvantaged by circumstance, to reach their dream goals in science and engineering.
