I worked in the insurance industry for fifteen years, I left Insurance as the Executive Director of the former Triumph Assurance company Limited. I have been a photographer since he was 18. I moved on to do a few things but got back into the arts when I invested in two films “FOWORA” and “OGBON”.

I have had successful photography exhibitions at the Bogobiri Art Festival in Lagos in 2013, and in 2014 had another exhibition at Terra Kulture which he was invited to do by the organising committee of FELABRATION. I was the first artist in residency at "MILIKI" where I had 2 more exhibitions, my last exhibition was at the Book and Kitchen in London 2017. Since leaving film School I have shoot a film called “Orisa Aafin” in which he was the main lead, Executive Producer, Producer, as well as Director in 2010.
