"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
- Nelson Mandela
As a highly passionate and accomplished multidisciplinary artist and marketing executive, I have dedicated my career to advancing sustainability and diversifying digital media. With extensive experience in fashion, beauty, automotive, and tech, I have played a leading role in some of the most exciting projects in Europe, North America, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Holding key positions at H&M, General Motors, Live Nation, and Beats by Dre, I have honed my skills in strategic marketing, communications, and business development.
My work is centered on transforming global sustainability narratives through powerful storytelling and strategic thinking. I am the founder of House of Akachi, a Lagos-based fashion and accessories brand that fuses upcycled fabrics with traditional African weaving techniques. Additionally, I co-founded ILERA Apothecary, an award-winning skincare company based in the U.S. that promotes the use of shea butter and baobab from co-operatives in Nigeria and Ghana.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, I hold a B.A. in Psychology from Ohio University and an MBA in Marketing and Communications from Franklin University. I am currently dividing my time between Lagos and Columbus and expanding my linguistic capabilities by learning French and Igbo to better relate to a global audience. I am driven by my deep commitment to making a positive impact on the world through my work.
