I am a Lagos-based professional Writer and Editor with interests in Design, Web Development, Spoken Word Poetry and Photography.

I have a BA in Mass Communication from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), and have since worked with a number of media outlets in different capacities: Africa Independent Television as an Intern Rerporter; Raypower 106.5FM as an Intern Radio Co-Host; Living Word Print Media as a Writer and Proofreader; Rhema 93.3FM as an On-Air Personality for 'The Big Music Countdown' (TBMC) and currently the Administrative Editor at Connect Nigeria, Ikoyi ― Lagos (Nigeria).
