More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

I am a software engineer, CyberSecurity Expert, Tech StartUp CEO and international speaker on business, technology, reformation and leadership. I live in South Africa but I am originally from Nigeria. I hold a university degree in Biochemistry from Abia State University, a Diploma in Information and Communications Technology, and hold several Certificates in Business Management, CyberSecurity, Ethical Hacking and yes, Theology.


My life's goal is to contribute to the eradication of poverty in Africa by exposing Africans to the wealth in Technology. To do this, I develop affordable technologies that help Africans to develop (examples are our ScratchBerry Technology, Gemsbok $1 dollar etc) and I speak in conferences to inspire Africans to embrace technology.
