Tewodros Fekadu was born in Eritrea in 1971, and scraped through his childhood years between relatives’ houses and the streets of Ethiopia. He has since lived in five countries on three continents. Since 2003, he has lived on the Gold Coast of Australia, where he is an active member of the community. He is the founder and president of the African Communities Association Gold Coast Inc., which shares African traditions and heritage through performance, education and training programs, and festivals. He also works with a number of community-based organisations, volunteering his time to assist with the resettlement of African refugees to the Gold Coast. Tewodros’ company, Moonface Entertainment, produces films and documentaries about East Africa. He regularly returns to Africa to shoot footage for his projects.
