About the Speakers

I’m an #upsidedown interaction designer, a jewelry designer, a problem solver, a prototyper, an inventor, a 3D enthusiast, a sculptor & a Steven Universe fan. I studied Interactive Telecommunications @NYU, and I’m interested in hacking current technologies to design hyper immersive physical & digital environments.

You could call me a maker, but I like to think of myself as a 21st century polymath. Some of my work on digital art and its relationship to public and personal spaces have been shown in exhibitions across the US and Nigeria.
