About Jimmy
Jimmy Makhulo is a very passionate visual story teller based in Nairobi. I studied journalism at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication and the ability to bring visual stories in multimedia form to life excites me a lot. 
Over the 10 years I have practiced journalism, I have perfected my skills in videography and this has led me to work with some of the best media houses and organizations in the country to produce great award winning visual stories.
Having worked with Internews Kenya, one of the leading media development organizations in the world, as a TV trainer, I gained valuable experience by being exposed to technical, theoretical and practical aspects of visual storytelling, always being driven by a strong desire to effect change in the world through my visually strong, compelling and factual stories. 

I have over time used my expertise to tell different stories in multimedia form that connect with the audience in an emotional honest way, stories that have in turn had a great impact in the communities they were told from.
