Bio

Before Unite Oregon, Luntha was a student at Southern Oregon University studying Sociology, organizing and working in the Rogue Valley student community with the Maslow Project, Rogue Community College and Kids Unlimited of Oregon. After moving to Oregon from Maryland, he has found himself right at home in the Pacific Northwest as the weather is not as punishing as the humid hot summers of the East coast. When not working or schooling, Luntha spends his time critically analyzing (and enjoying) American pop culture and music, playing futbol (not soccer) and cooking anything and everything from scratch.

Being born in Malawi and raised in London, Luntha often finds himself missing quality African and Jamaican food (where is the Jollof and Jerk chicken in this state!?). He also spends an overwhelmingly large amount of his time going to concerts (particularly Afro beats and Jazz), podcasting with friends about music, politics and TV disappointments like Game of Thrones. He also enjoys long hikes around Oregon’s beautiful landscapes.
