About the Author of SmileKenya
It is difficult for you to learn all about Kenya without learning something about the person behind the idea. I am a male Kenyan citizen in my late thirties.
I hold a University degree on social arts though my career revolves around software development.
It is those things that happen in once life time that after so many years coding and watching software come to life, having lost oneself in a world that you believed in, you wake up one day and discover anther world.
This other world was there from the beginning beckoning at you to discover it but you continue with the motions of life oblivious of its existence, then one day i meet a friend, and we started charting.
The friend introduced me to writing, before then maybe the longest thing i had written was my name and i had no idea i could write anything. Once introduced i got hooked. I found putting ideas and news to paper much easier that coding. Now here i am! i feel i want to write and write, that is why i decided i want to write about all those things that we discuss every day, things that we share, things that define a society, things that dictate the future and all those things that affect us in our day to day life.
I want to put those thought provoking ideas that i dream of in writing and share them with you.
I know you may want to say that i sound confused and excited, but try to understand that i am the type of person who does not want to limit himself to any particular subject or discipline. I want to be every where and nowhere all at the same time. That is why i will share with you all that interest me, that which i have shared with others and i want to share the same with you.
The call of duty has seen me travel to various parts of the country and without. Wherever i have gone i have meet people who have something to share or report. Whatever it is, it may or may not be involved with my chosen career, but i enjoy it tremendously.
About the site – Smile Kenya
One day i sat in the office thinking. I thought about my self, my life, life of those around me and more so at how we communicate. These thoughts had been provoked by a recent message we had received.
We were in a social place with a friend of mine who received a message about a deceased relative. The messenger was all pains trying to deliver the message in the lightest way possible to try and cushion my friend from expected pain. The message went round in circles until it was finally delivered.
This got me thinking, why not?
Why not deliver the news, the idea, the stories, the folklore with a light touch, Even the worst news can be delivered with a smooth edge.
