ABOUT ME

I am a filmmaker working on his first full lenght film. I'm currently trying to raise money to produce it. I am to further pursue and develop my love for art & history on an international level. I am an avid runner and film watcher. I was a track and field athlete in college. I have a B.A. in Film and Theatre. I was born in Nigeria,and mostly grew-up in Detroit. I'm currently based in Chicago and traveling from the east coast to the west coast on my bicycle.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe filmmaking is the art that most closely reflects reality, and through this form we can better understand ourselves.

Running/Walking long distances for it builds character.
