About Me

I believe in your story, even if you don't know what that is yet. That's where I come in.

I'm a Nigerian-American writer, editor, and unapologetic host of podcast, That's No Longer My Ministry. I believe in the power of language and storytelling to build community, and inspire healing and change. That is, if you tell the right story.

I'm a storyteller at my core, which shows up in all of my work whether I'm penning my own poetry, writing something quick and witty for Thrillistcrafting clear and engaging communication campaigns for Amazon or Tableau, or strategizing on how to make it easier for creators and publishers to use Facebook products to make their creative dreams and passion projects a reality.

My story in short: I purge anxieties both aesthetic and melanin-specific, and face people who look at me like a wild fire; who treat me like a child throwing a tantrum over a little discomfort; people who wear raincoats so nothing I’ve spilt will ever soak into their milky skin; eyes wide and wet with 'how dare you' when I demand them to say I matter.
