Thanks Tom! I’m excited to be joining the Human Made team.

I started out as a web developer in Zenith Bank Nigeria. From there I’ve spent half of my career working as a contracting developer in Lagos with fruitful stints in the startup scene. I have a traditional art background, so I originally focused on graphic design and frontend development before expanding to do backend work with WordPress and Django. My two favourite things are media and tech; I’ve always had the most fun tinkering with CMSs and digital publishing platforms.

Joining Human Made for me felt almost like a happy accident. I was looking for new opportunities when a Twitter friend introduced me to Jenny Wong who was more than happy to acquaint me with how the company works. I was attracted to the idea of not only doing more complex work with WordPress but working in a distributed and supportive team – something that will give me the opportunity to do interesting work while seeing the world.

Joining the team as a Web Engineer I’m excited to contribute more to the WordPress community, especially with the recent launch of Gutenberg. It’s looking great so far!
