Business Development Lead
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Abidjan

I am a singer and entrepreneur based in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, where I am developing a venture studio that builds tech and media companies alongside purpose-driven entrepreneurs, artists, and inventors.

I continue to serve as the Business Development Lead for the Topaz Group, a West African conglomerate headquarted in Conakry, Guinea, where I have spent two years building local food manufacturing units in Burkina Faso. I also serve on the board of Angaza Elimu, a Nairobi-based edtech company and Vliso Al, a New York-based artificial intelligence consulting company.

With a passion for music, I have produced two records for the Art of Living foundation, in which I merge classical eastern music with house music.

I hold a Bachelor's degree from NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where I concentrate on disruptive innovation and social entrepreneurship.
