I was born in Mankato, Minnesota to two Nigerian immigrants. I’ve paid rent in New Delhi, Greensboro, Bangalore, San Francisco and Dharamshala, but I currently reside in Chicago.

I'm the CEO of Travel Noire, an award-winning boutique travel company. We reach 2MM travelers a month & our goal is to change the way we view international travelers, forever. 

Previously, I cloned a gene as a biologist, ran a national anti-tobacco campaign, helped open a Civil Rights Museum & traveled through 90% of Asia.

I love my Lord, Jesus Christ. I also love building things, photography, John Hughes movies, company cultures, and all things design.
