I was born in Nigeria and trained in Canada. I have been in various classrooms both as a learner and as a teacher.

I have a BA (Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma), an MA (University of Regina), and a PhD (Dalhousie University, Halifax). All three degrees are in the areas of French language and linguistics, translation and languages for special purposes.

I am the author of Taking Back Nigeria from 419 (published in 2007) as well as many scholarly articles in reputable academic journals.

I have experience in academics and years of leadership roles in both the private and public sectors. I served eight years at the University of Regina as an Assistant Professor.

As an entrepreneur, I owned and operated my own small businesses and corporations.

Since September 2015, I have been serving in the public sector as a Communications Consultant with the Government of Saskatchewan. I served with the Ministry of Education from 2015 to 2019.

Since February 2019, I serve in three ministries: Energy & Resources, Immigration and Career Training, and Trade & Export Development.

I love the challenges of communications and enjoy helping public servants, publicly elected leaders and managers at various levels of government to say things in ways that citizens and regular folks can understand.
