Hello and welcome to my website.
I’m a digital strategist, content creator, and author. My career intersects Digital media & Marketing, content design, Higher education, eLearning and Applied linguistics.
I hold a BSc Hons in Digital Media, a Master’s degree in eLearning and Information design, as well as a Post graduate certificate of education. I have over 15 years digital marketing experience working across diverse niches.
But as far back as I can remember – I’ve always been very creative, initially as a child and young teen by making handicrafts using various media, and then moving into digital design as a web and graphic design professional. Digital Media has given me the freedom to mix and match my technological and creative skills and this has led me on a fascinating career journey.
I am currently the director of an IT firm, T-One Technologies. T-One Technologies offers On demand IT solutions to SMEs and it has offices in London, Abuja and Lagos.At T-One I consult on digital marketing strategies on how to increase online visibility and engagement for SMEs. Prior to that I was a University lecturer for five years at the University of Greenwich, London, where I lectured in Digital Media, Social Media Marketing and Internet Entrepreneurship.
I was trying to find modern Igbo language learning materials for my children, and because I couldn’t find any I decided to use my digital media and Igbo language skills and start creating them.This has taken me on an unbelievable journey for the past five years.
I created and called my lgbo language learning materials Learn Igbo Now. So far this has ballooned into a gigantic social media crowdsourcing project, language learning books, awards and it keeps growing from strength to strength.I’ve recently introduced other African language books like Yoruba, Hausa, Gikuyu etc. I’m passionate about bringing African languages to the world stage, and to drive the creation of afrocentric language learning and narrative based media that will make a lasting impact on both Africans and non-Africans.
Alongside Learn Igbo Now & Learn Languages Now, I am a co-convener at The annual Igbo Conference, which is hosted by SOAS, University of London. There’s more information at The Igbo Conference
I’m passionate about using technology to solve business and educational problems. As a digital content creator, my job is to get information in an easy to use and effective format. I’m able to use this using my digital media, education, elearning skills.My research interests include Behaviour change communication, Social Marketing and Applied Linguistics.
