Using a multi-disciplinary approach, I combine a passion for law, theology, history and politics to reflect on issues affecting both personal and national development.  I do this with the conviction that our true greatness lies ahead of us. I also passionately believe that we owe a duty to the next generation to do all we can to make their world a better world.

As a child growing up in different parts of my native Zambia, my school-teacher father modelled before us what it meant to be dedicated to country and public service. In 2001, after college graduation, I served as an instructor and eventually as principal of a theological college in Zambia. I have served in ordained ministry since 2004.

In 2007, I made the trip to Canada as a student. I have since worked as a counsellor and as a pastor in Calgary, Alberta. I am now a registered student-at-law with the Law Society of Alberta (LSA). As a student-at-law, I must do a term of articles to satisfy requirements for the call to the bar of Alberta. On March 1st 2015, I started my first two-month composite articling position with Kubitz and Company, a personal injury law firm based in Calgary. My principal was Mr. Walter Kubitz, Q.C. In May 2015, I articled at Howard Law Office. My prospective areas of practice as a lawyer are those that are closely connected to social justice, constitutionalism and the rule of law.
