Ian Paul Byamugisha: Novelist / Author / Writer. Poet. Car Journalist.
Uganda, East Africa
Born in 1993 in the semi-urban district of Mbarara; Western Uganda (East Africa), my fate was almost predetermined the moment I could read and write. I started school at 2 years and I didn’t have trouble coping up. I loved to play with pencils and books and I loved it whenever it was story time; – this as told by my mother.
As I grew up, reading and writing became less of a school routine and more of something I genuinely loved and apprehensively looked forward to. Eventually I learned how to read and write on my own and I’d make my own little creations.
At 10 years old, I realized I wasn’t just intrigued by literature, I was good at it. My speeches in school often stood out, my way with words was something that was a description when someone was asked by anyone to tell them who I was. I’ve been writing constantly since. Taking the time to nurture, mentor and grow a God given talent that became a passion and now, a significant part of my who i am. A career and a gateway to the greatness i am preparing to release onto the world.
If I cannot feel it, I cannot write it. Words are the easiest way to express myself. I write from my heart.
Today, I am a Writer / Author / Novelist, Speech writer, Poet, Music and Movie critic and most recently, I am a car journalist. My love for cars, speed, engine noises and car tech got me learning a lot from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Considered the epitome of car journalism, i draw my inspiration from how remarkably they understand cars.
Writing and cars aside, I am adept in Information Technology and for my day time job, i am a tech support engineer for a financial tech firm. One of the largest and very best in Africa with a Global footprint. That would make technology my third love.
As a tech guy, my love for cars is anchored on the technology side of it. Features, gizmos and any advancement in performance, security, safety, entertainment, design and of course science.
