"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but emigrated from Tanzania to the United Kingdom at the tender age of two where I now live. I work in the fields of telecoms, data networks, and cyber security. I have a keen passion in travel photography, pedalling furiously on my bicycles, and travelling off the beaten path to far flung places. “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” has been a guide in my travels.
