I’m Charlie, originally from Kenya; Ireland has been my home for over 20 years.
Growing up in Kenya, I was football mad -Simba Star was my team.
I thought it fitting to pay homage to my Kenyan roots by keeping the name.
I had initially begun a degree in software electronics only to discover that it wasn’t for me. I needed to do something that allowed me to be creative, involved working with others, forming connections and provided opportunities for growth.
Luckily, I went on to study Video Production and I have been enjoying
a career creating video content ever since.
I started my career in video journalism working for the likes of GMTV and RTE.
I then decided to go freelance 10 years ago concentrating on producing professional commercial videos for businesses that promote brands, engage audiences and showcase services.
To diversify I entered the wedding cinematography world. To date I’ve worked on hundreds of weddings over the years. Weddings are my passion. I love meeting couples and their families and documenting what is one of the most important days of their lives.
