How do I make a difference?

- afrocentricity -
I apply Afrocentric design methodologies to create, test and scale solutions for complex sociocultural problems in Africa.
Afrocentricity is a frame of reference that interrogates emerging social reality from the perspective of the African person. Through the Afrocentric approach, I seek the appropriate centrality of the African person in diverse situations, and apply social design methodologies to innovate solutions for complex sociocultural problems in Africa.

Unique Value

- multitalented designer -

I bring forth a melting pot of experience, expertise and networks - gained from a decade of working across continents, cultures and diverse sociocultural challenges. I have registered as much success as failure, and I bring that honesty to every new project.

“The Campaigner personality is a true free spirit – creative & charismatic. Charming, independent, energetic, compassionate. Can be felt in any crowd. Often the life of the party. If there’s a challenge Campaigners face when selecting a career, it’s that there are so many things out there that are just cool.”
