I was born and raised in Tanzania, East Africa, and have lived in the US since 1994. My wife and I have been married for 5 years and we have a son, Adrian, who is 2 years old. For fun, I enjoy sports, outdoor activities, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. I am excited to be part of The Fuqua School of Business, and a part of the Blue Devil pride and spirit! I’m a huge Duke basketball fan. I enjoy other sports including football and soccer. I also run regularly, and I have challenged myself in several marathons.
I’ve lived in the Research Triangle Park area for the last 12 years, and prior to that, I was in Houston, Texas, where I attended the University of Houston — Cullen College of Engineering. My undergraduate degree was in electrical and computer engineering.
I am a WorkStation Technical Solutions Expert, managing the Medical Imaging vertical, for the Lenovo WorkStation Business Unit. Our WorkStations are branded as “ThinkStation.” I started my career at IBM back in January 2001 as a Storage Engineer within the Storage Procurement Engineering Team.
Before my current position at Lenovo, I was part of the ThinkStation Development Team that launches WorkStation products for Lenovo. I worked as Platform Engineer, responsible for both single and double socket workstation platforms. I spent four years in the Development Team, where I had excellent experience in trouble shooting problems, and driving issues to closure. This experience has been crucial to my current job, where I get to work with customers and advise them on the best solutions to solve their problems.
