    About me

    I am half Nigerian, quarter English and quarter Italian. I began acting in an improvisational comedy group in Nigeria in the mid 90s, until I moved over to the UK. After a number of theatre performances, I was picked to be one of the 30 Actors (out of 1000 submissions) to be part of the 2006 Old Vic New Voices 24-Hour Plays, where I relished he opportunity to work with one of my heroes - Kevin Spacey.

    Since then, I began writing, producing and directing short films, and have appeared in a number of feature films music videos.
