I was born in Nigeria and later moved to Botswana, a landlocked country in Southern Africa best known for its diamond reserves & wildlife. I now live in the Evergreen State.



Founded CyberCorp (a web development boutique firm) in '99. Later co-founded (w/ Santosh) the first online social networking portal in Southern Africa, eDumela. Dumela means 'hello' in the local language.

eDumela grew to become the most trafficked social networking portal in Botswana & Southern Africa, before it was retired in '05. Due to its popularity & because Botswana has one of the highest AIDS infection rates in the world, we also incorporated an online AIDS awareness campaign into eDumela, the first of its kind in the region. Check out some of the feedback from users who were positively influenced by that effort.
