I'm a communications professional who develops and implements strategies, messages, and collateral to consistently articulate an organization's mission. I graduated from the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mass Communications and a Master of Public Administration

I published "African Expectations: Musings from where I stand" in 2012. The book is a collection of essays about how political, economic, and socio-cultural issues retard Africa's development and how the most important factor for this failure is the lack of good leadership. The book offers tentative solutions to some of the most pressing issues of our times based on my worldview and life experiences.

I have been involved in various volunteer and community work while living in the United States, including a tornado relief effort with Service International in Joplin, MO as well as speaking engagements with nonprofits such as Cercle Social.

I am now a volunteer speaker with Passages Canada and currently pursuing interests in photography, writing and social entrepreneurship.
