Can you take us through your journey into the world of tech?
My journey into the fascinating realm of technology is quite a tale. It all began when I joyously clutched my very first computer certificate right after high school – a time when computers were like enchanting artifacts from a distant future. During those early days, I immersed myself in the world of computer applications while passionately pursuing scriptwriting and stage drama. Despite my academic path leading me toward a degree in Political Science, my heart remained steadfastly tethered to the ever-evolving world of technology and drama. Astonishingly, some of my most remarkable academic achievements sprouted from the elective computer-related courses I pursued during my college years. These courses, running parallel to my primary field of study and my various theatrical productions, sowed the seeds of a burgeoning passion that would flourish in the years to come.
As time flowed by and I ventured further into theatre through various stage productions. I equally seized every opportunity to immerse myself in diverse tech roles, diligently honing my skills and expanding my expertise. My knowledge and competence in this field owe much to my unwavering commitment to self-learning, driven by an insatiable curiosity. Today, I find myself at the helm of managing an organization’s applications, leading a team of gifted tech enthusiasts who share my fervor. Furthermore, I proudly wear the hat of a partner in a forward-thinking establishment, surrounded by individuals who are nothing short of tech wizards.
Adding another layer to this remarkable journey, I’ve amassed an impressive collection of certifications spanning Project Management, Agile Scrum, Business Analysis, Lean Six Sigma, ERP, and more. These certifications stand as a testament to my dedication to enriching my skill set. In essence, it has been an enduring and rewarding odyssey, marked by countless baby steps that have coalesced into a magnificent voyage through the ever-evolving landscape of technology.
Beyond my presence in the tech arena, I have continued to make waves in the world of filmmaking, producing award-winning gems such as ‘Blackmail’ (where I served as the executive producer), ‘Troublous Weekend’ (for which I donned the hats of director and producer), and ‘A Different Lens’ (where I assumed the roles of writer, producer, and director). Some of the accolades garnered include the AMAA Award, the British Urban Film Festival Winner, an award nomination for Best Short at the North America – Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival, and the prestigious Best Feature Film award at the London International Monthly Film Festival. Being a scriptwriter, I intimately comprehend the challenges of content generation and can empathize with content creators across various domains. This empathy served as a driving force behind the birth of LexiGenius.
