About George Kevin


At heart, I am a film/stage/documentary script writer and director. I was the casting director of two major feature films - Soul Boy and Togetherness Supreme and worked as a project manager at Hot Sun Foundation. In my previous life I have been a private investigator, a bodyguard, a scout master, life guard and pool attendant. I am also one of the founder/organizer of TEDx Kibera.

Why TEDx Kibera? The TEDx concept allows me to not only spread TED talks but also create a platform for the many good ideas I come across in my neighborhood. Kibera has been my abode from my teenage days to date, and I would love to see changes in my neighborhood. I take my work seriously and in my free time you will find me watching detective movies. I am an easy going person and love to make new friends.
