With a new year comes new things… And people. The team is growing. It feels like family already! Here are the faces working behind the scenes to deliver digital solutions to you:
Fred is the brains behind the team. The strategist. Technophile. Digital Nomad. The Jack of all trades (In a good way. You need this skillset in a digital agency.) He is firmly focused on assisting Belva Digital clients improve their business goals, and is ahead of trends and strategies to make digital marketing more effective for the brands we serve.
When he is not being a gentleman, like when lunch is on him, he is preaching the Google+ gospel. He loves a puzzle every now and then and will share with the team. Gets us all revved up on a slow afternoon. (Slow afternoons are rare here.) He is not afraid to make big decisions and take risks. The ultimate entrepreneur. Quite collected too.
Fred holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and has previously worked for Google and IBM in various positions.
Michael is the coder. The complete web guy. He lives and breathes content, design and code. Michael studied design and animation at Shang Tao College of Arts.. He is currently in his fourth year at JKUAT, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Technology. He carries with him a wealth of knowledge in design, having previously worked as a Web and UI/UX designer for companies and agencies like ICIPE, Isys Kenya, Kenya School of Monetary studies and freelance Creative Design for over 4 years. Michael thrives to create solutions that are visually harmonious and portray the personalities of our clients, ensuring each design is a true reflection of our client’s identity.
When he is zoned out on his keyboard, he is probably listening to some AfroHouse and talking the rest of us into listening to it. He believes chocolate jumpstarts you in the morning after hours of traffic. He is an ASUS evangelist. Also the other gentleman in the team. He will offer real food to a lady and go for fries instead. We all know fries are not really food to an African man.
Shiku is the girl who puts ideas into words. The social media freak. The you-don’t-do-that-on-social-media kind of girl. The blogger. She’d rather miss her breakfast than miss the latest post from her circles on Google+.
Shiku brings to the table in-depth understanding of New Media and its application in business. She is an Information Sciences graduate who has worked in renowned digital agencies like Say Cheese Writers and Brand2D in various capacities.
Away from work, you will find her listening to Gospel hip hop when she’s not taking selfies She devotes a significant amount of her free time blogging and dishing out relationship advice. Writer during the week, Sunday school teacher on Sunday. If she’s not enjoying her no-lunch-just-yoghurt moments, she is tweeting and chatting; good fodder for penning down amazing stories for the world to read.
Now that you have met us, let us go back to work.
