MY PERSONAL HISTORY
I was born in 1977 in Arusha Town Region.   I’m married to a Japanese lady and I have two cute baby boys. Recently I traveled to the United States where I visited more than 10 States.   I got the opportunity to do many things such as visit different hospitals e.g. the Martha Jefferson in Virginia, talk about my culture and Tanzania, meet Katie Melua a Singer in San Francisco (Union Square) and visit the White House in Washington DC.   In Washington DC I also met my sponsor Peter Ivan.

SKILLS AND OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS
I have attended and completed various Wilderness First Responder and First Aid courses run by Aerie Backcountry medicine, the National Outdoor Leadership School and the Tanzanian Red Cross.   I have also completed practical emergency rescues at 15,000ft on Mt Kilimanjaro and solo expeditions within Rongai Forest Moshi Tanzania.

In addition I am trained, through the Mweka Wildlife College, in handling fire arms and approaching dangerous animals.  Necessary skills for leading walking safaris.

During my studies I presented a number of papers to the College of African Wildlife Management Mweka including  baseline biodiversity surveys within the savanna landscape (Tanzania) as well as amphibian, invertebrate, reptile and large mammal surveys,  a comprehensive inventory of mammal and bird abundance and diversity in the different habitats in Arusha National Park, Saadani National Park and Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and an assessment of the littering problem on Mount Kilimanjaro in (Mweka and Machame Routes)-which I also presented to KINAPA-Kilimanjaro National Park Authority.
