About me
I am a multi-skilled passionate individual with relevance in creative, corporate and social settings. I seek to bring my experience and problem-solving skills to value-building scenarios. I am currently selling Digital Wallet integrations to Merchants at the Paysafe Group. Having performed all of the UK and as far afield as the US and Dubai, I have taken my brand of stand-up comedy far and wide and across different media. I also run a live production company that puts on my concept show "Sunday Service with Ola".
Projects
  • Sunday Service with Ola
    Sunday Service with OlaI created a live concept comedy show called Sunday Service with Ola. It's a comedy and debate show format themed as a church service. I assembled a team and brought the idea to life including instituting a re-brand, creating content, promotion and pitching. The show held a residency at the Hospital Club and went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018.
