About this site

Work. Portfolio. Thoughts & Inspiration.

Hello and welcome to my personal slice of web space. This is the place where I seek to indulge myself in all things that interest me. I however, also hope for this blog to be a useful platform for documenting, learning, sharing and communicating.

Born in Nigeria, breed in England and Scotland, I am now in the latter parts of my journey to become a chartered architect in the UK. Given this background this blog will often have a bias towards design, the general humanities and social sciences, as this is where my major interests lie. This said, music and food (particularly of the baked variety) are things I can’t do without and will undoubtedly feature here too!

So please free to browse around , leave your impressions or get in touch! I am a recent university graduate with professional experience in architecture and design, and I’m open to freelance work related to these fields. Visit my CV and Portfolio pages for a scope of my personal work and do not hesitate to contact me for some general advice or indeed with regards to some design work you may need help doing.

    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (Madiba)

    Born 18th July 1918 and shall live evermore.


    In light of recent revelations regarding Nelson Mandela’s quickly deteriorating health, I think it is important to take a moment and pay a little pictorial tribute to the living legend and a man who will forever inspire.

    At 94 years of age, Mandela is currently in hospital fighting hard against an ongoing lung condition, that has troubled him since his 27 year imprisonment.

    I wish him a truly speedy recovery and hope in true character, he triumphs yet again. The world is in short supply of true idols and greats like Madiba are never superfluous. UPDATE…05/12/13 Today one of the few shining lights of this world has passed on. Madiba leaves behind a truly unshakeable legacy that has knowingly or not effected the lives of so many. Together with other heroes, many unfortunately unsung, they strengthened the worlds social agenda and made unprecedented leaps in progressing social integration and promoting social cohesion, not only for black africans but for a significant number of marginalised groups and individuals. My Letter to a Legend Dear Mandela, you have sacrificed so much and achieved far beyond that than can be asked for by any one person. Despite my few years you have enriched my life as well as that of my family and friends. In my weakest of moments you have and will forever be a source of strength and guidance. I pray you rest in the most deserved peace. From one of a thankful million.
