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 founder & former Chief Executive Officer of Travel Noire, an award-winning boutique travel company. In 2017, Travel Noire was acquired by Blavity. At the time of sale, we reached over 2MM travelers a month. You can read more about why I sold my company here.

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 desire to live my life submitted to the Will of God. I’m an entrepreneur and investor. I love building things, photography and design. You can find what I’m up to now, here.
