Screening & Lecture At Birchmount Collegiate Institute - UPDATE

UPDATE - Thanks to the people that made it happen; Lisa Foster and Natalie Lapko. It was a wonderful opportunity to share my experience with the people of Kibera with a multicultural class of young people here in Toronto. Thanks also to the school and faculty at Birchmount Collegiate Institute! And of course my lovely amazing wife Emeralda who came for moral support, and took the awesome photo above!

I'll be screening Matatu Express at Birchmount Collegiate Institute tonight at 830PM. Following that, I will be giving a talk on technology and hip hop in youth culture and it's impact on the future of informal settlements. It's for a continuing education International Business class. Needless to say, I am super looking forward to sharing my experiences. Although this event is not open to the public, if you are interested in me giving a talk somewhere else on this topic, please feel free to email me at
