    This year life took an unexpected turn with the arrival of twin boys Opiyo (the traditional name for the first born of twins) and Ocen (also the traditional name and pronounced O Chen) I'm March....

    I am still a photographer but more of a humanitarian based in Gulu, still work with Adobe and their first African based Adobe Community Professional......
    We have a grass thatched hut in the village near Odek 70km from Gulu which is where the rebel leader Kony came from........

    Wishing everyone Seasons Greetings from Gulu where its 30ºC most days ....;)
