About me:

I am a highly motivated, adaptable and dependable registered Graduate Engineer, B.Sc. Civil Engineering with over 5 years' experience working on various projects from inception to completion. 

Currently I’m working as a civil engineering/project managing consultant for Global Excel International Limited. Previously I worked as a Site Agent/Project Manager for the aforementioned company on the Kenya National Highway Authority project i.e., INSTALLATION OF RETRO REFLECTIVE DELINEATORS (CAT EYES) ALONG NAIROBI - THIKA (A2S) ROAD. CONTRACT NO: KeNHA/R5/146/2021. A role I excelled in various capacities including but not limited to, site supervision, management and administration. 

Prior to this professional engagement, I also served as an Assistant Engineer on the UPGRADING TO BITUMEN STANDARD OF THE MOIBEN RIVER - KAPLAMAI - SIBANGA - MAILI SABA - MAILI KUMI NA MOJA CONTRACT NO: KeRRA/RWC/362 (KITALE), project. 
In this project, I was part of the Resident Engineers’ team involved in supervision of works, quality control & assurance, project documentation as well as ensuring synergy and correspondence (project documentation), between the contractor and employer in order to achieve the desired targets and impact of the project.  

My wealth of experience in civil engineering, in proportion to the length of my career thus far gives me the requisite qualifications for the any open position.
