I was styling my friends before I even knew what the word Fashion Stylist existed.
I was designing websites before I even knew what it meant to be a UX Designer.
Inspiration is what I’m always after and what I hope to leave behind.

During my career as a Fashion Connoiseur, I have contributed immensely to the Nigerian creative industry through mentoring young people pursuing creative disciplines, public speaking and judging for cultural events, and continue to offer free learning on Youtube. I am an advocate of personal, social and economic development through empowering the business sense of young people pursuing creative disciplines, sharing industry insight encouraging personal growth to inspire self-efficiency.

I also enjoy creating from waste, spearheading engaging content, the experience of learning new skills, and sharing industry insight on how to apply the ever-changing world trends to the real world settings. And I use social media as a tool for my business and to document my work, thoughts, process and sense of humor.
