Wesley is the CTO and Co-founder at of Leti Arts, and based in Nairobi Kenya where he has lived most of his life.
In 2007, pursuing his passion to develop a video game industry in Africa, he created his first indie game entitled The Adventures of Nyangi, which now has its place in history as the first ever video game built and released in sub-Saharan Africa. It was inspired by Tomb Raider, set in Kenya, had an all-Kenyan cast of characters, and won him the coveted award of Africa’s Top ICT Youth Innovator in 2008.
Since then he has worked across a wide range of commercial software development, contributing heavily to the digital industry in Kenya through affiliation with organisations such as BRCK and the iHub, eventually co-founding Leti Arts in 2009.
He’s a regular speaker at industry events, including GDC 2013.
An entrepreneur at heart, he is passionate about simple and creative uses of technology to solve everyday problems, tell stories and entertain. He has founded three companies so far and has been developing commercial software for 15 years.
