Themba received his bachelors in Telecommunications at the private liberal arts school Lee University, and studied abroad in Egypt and Israel in the Middle East Studies Program. 

Themba was accepted into the Cannes Business Program during the 68th Festival de Cannes, and also had ‘Ketchup & Blood’ (2015), a civil rights dramatic short film, screen at the Emerging Student Showcase in the American Pavilion in Cannes, France. Currently, he resides in Chicago as a Master of Fine Arts candidate in the Cinema Arts + Science program at Columbia College, studying and practicing Creative Producing.
