I'm a 26 yr old IT Graduate cum Web & Graphic Design Freelancer residing in Nairobi.

I also run my own successful T-shirt and apparel branding business.

I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best.

I’m a people-person. I love meeting new people and learning about their lives and their backgrounds. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making people feel comfortable in my presence.

Above all, I'm outgoing, love exploring new experiences and places, big fan of music: electro music, deep house, rock, reggae, and local music which I'd highly recommend. I love a party anytime!

This fun extends to sporting activities like indoor games: darts, Jenga, table tennis, pool, or walking to the football and rugby stadiums in the city.

The best experience in Nairobi. You learn about the Kenyan culture and have a chance to design a shirt to your liking. I had to do more than one shirt when you see the quality.

James is an excellent host and a master of his craft. One of the unique things about this experience is that he introduces you to Nairobi’s special culture right away by taking a matatu, which is how everyday people here commute yet it’s quite special. His studio is small yet cozy as he is a budding entrepreneur as well as fresh graduate. The process of designing the t-shirt involves him showing ideas from the past so that you can shape your own visual design. James can custom design many other quaint souvenirs as well. I’d definitely recommend this experience to those who want an inside look into the lives of techies/designers as well as a trustworthy friend. Be on the lookout for some of his other experiences here in Kenya if you’re a foodie or curious about Nairobi’s nightlife.

First of all I had no idea what to expect but I received way more than I paid for. Instead of 1 T-shirt, James blessed me with 3. He went above and beyond to show me the inner workings of his craft and the Nairobi city. He’s self taught in many ways and was eager and happy to share his knowledge. I received more than the allotted time because we became friends. I met his other friend and we 3 hit it off. We are now friends for life!! I wouldn’t have enjoyed Nairobi as much if it weren’t for James; especially since I was solo on my trip. He can be trusted and is genuinely a compassionate person. I have already recommended him to my friends who are interested in traveling to Kenya. Kudos!!
