I'm a Finnish-Nigerian documentary filmmaker, cinematographer & photographer based in New York City, US and Helsinki, Finland. I work from a documentary style approach, bringing my experience within the field to anything ranging from documentary film to commercials.
My practice examines stories that open up new visual representations toward personal and communal identities and the ways that they relate to and are shaped by their environments. Everyday life and personal narratives are the core subjects in my work, opening up into wider discourses around marginalized communities and acceptance within larger societal and cultural structures.
I've graduated from the graduate program in Documentary Media Studies at The New School and have a Bachelor's degree in Photojournalism from the University of Tampere.
