Born in Nigeria. Educated in the United States. Based in Sweden.
My photography and travel writing are often characterized by vibrancy and hope. I graduated with a Masters (MSc) degree in Information Systems from the University of Maryland with a minor in Geography. I specialized in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for 12+ years and my affinity for the geosciences and maps meant I was born to travel.
I am the 2018 Travel Photographer of the Year Bill Muster Award recipient.
My work has appeared in National Geographic Traveler, BBC, CNN, The Guardian, Travel + Leisure, Slate, Travel Channel, Lonely Planet, Fodor’s, National Geographic Channel, several in-flight magazines, New York Times online, amongst others.
Some of my articles and photography have been syndicated on MSNBC, Slate, Yahoo, New York Daily News, Chicago Sun Times, Huffington Post, and Time Warner.
