Communications Manager, Book Bunk Trust
Jonathan is passionate about writing, communications and storytelling. He currently leads communications at Book Bunk Trust, a social impact firm working to restore some of Nairobi’s most iconic public libraries. At Book Bunk, he has been a focal point for several campaigns including Book Bunk’s inaugural literary festival, #NBOLitfest.
Prior to joining Book Bunk, he led communications at Pangea Accelerator, a Nordic based startup accelerator and investment platform in East Africa working to leverage opportunities for African entrepreneurs. His communications efforts in Kenya’s startup tech space, commonly referred to as “Silicon Savannah”, contributed in advancing opportunities for entrepreneurs leading to increased funding and stakeholder engagement.
Now focused on increasing opportunities for creatives, Jonathan has been involved in different cultural/creative based programmes with the hope of promoting new models for storytelling and engaging with diverse audiences.
When he is not at his desk, you can catch him watching reruns of sitcoms, because, what is life, if you aren't always laughing?
