About Steve Banner

My greatest passion is storytelling. I’m a blogger, producer, editor, and a camera person with over four years of experience covering stories in Kibera and Mathare slums in Nairobi, Kenya. I worked for Kibera News Network, which is funded by Map Kibera Trust.My passion is telling stories about community issues. In the past, I’ve done stories for about incomplete government projects dealing with water and housing in Nairobi slums. My goal is to amplify the voice of my neighbors and fellow slum dwellers. I’d love to pass my film making skills to others in my community through training sessions, so we can increase the number of stories coming out of the slums, where so many Kenyans live.Like many people in Kibera, I have other jobs, too. .... I’m very passionate about music too, I'm also a Deejay by proffesion and I love oldschool music,
