My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Abuja
THNK connection: THNKer , EMERGE - Class 05

In the last two years, I have come to a rude awakening of the extensive nature of my ability to identify patterns, draw insights, and help build solutions to some of the most daunting challenges facing us as a society.

Professionally, I work on the crucial task of helping individuals and businesses to build agency and expand the access to and adequacy of finance. At last count, the financial products I have built have been crucial in unlocking over $50 million to underserved businesses and individuals. More importantly, this impacts the lives of the individuals at the bottom of the pyramid and I find joy in proving the value that exists in this segment of the economy.

In this current phase of life, I am striving to extend my definition of value and expand the horizon of impact to include the society I live and work in. Above all, I strive to be a better man to my wonderful family.
