About

I'm a multidisciplinary digital designer with experience building web products and apps. In the past, I have worked with startups, small business, larger companies, and governments to design and build products to help their users and meets their business goals.

As a self-taught designer, I spent the early part of of my career working as a freelance designer, before joining an Agency in 2011, after which I worked at Andela, then went ahead to join Konga.com — An e-commerce company in Nigeria, mainly focused on building out the payment vertical of the company.

In 2017, I joined Booking.com, and spent 3 years working in various teams from Accessibility to User Generated Content.

Previously, I have had to work across multiple roles including - product design, print design and web development but these days my interests lie more in strategy, design-thinking, experimentation, user research, usability testing and front-end implementation.

I have a background in graphic design, architecture and urban planning.

In my spare time, I love to read, create art, play video games, or take pictures.
