About me

I’m a filmmaker and actor because I’m Nigerian (we’re overachievers), but mainly because I love finding the best ways to tell stories. I graduated with honours from the School of Visual Arts Film and Video programme in 2010. My thesis film “Homecoming” screened at NewFilmmakers NY, the Estes Park Film Festival, and the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival. In 2015, I finished my Meisner acting training with Jim Brill, senior faculty of the Neighborhood Playhouse. I’ve worked in TV (production and post), film, and advertising.
