"I am a Nigerian-born, Brooklyn-based artist and designer. In May of 2000 I received a Bachelor's degree in Architecture from Cornell University where my focus of study was primarily on investigating the relevant potential for a variety of computer software within the fields of art, design and architecture. After graduating I enjoyed a 4 year tenure as a senior designer at the inimitable dbox before continuing on to pursue my creative compulsions full-time. Since then I have been fortunate enough to exhibit my artwork in venues throughout the world as well as create beautiful visuals for a variety of amazing clients."
