HEY, I’M TOMI


            



I like to think of myself as a multifaceted being simply because my interests and passions are quite varied, and they make up a large part of who I am today.

I enjoy surfing the web, exploring stuff, writing, pushing pixels, drawing (sometimes), learning about technology, making art, meeting people, visiting places, taking photos, the list goes on...

I’m a Nigerian from the Yoruba ethnic group. I come from a family of 5, and I mostly work as a designer for a living. I’m also Christian, so I subscribe to certain values and beliefs.





LIFE



I'm really curious about life. I believe the essence of life is to live for a purpose bigger than myself. I strongly follow the ideology that I am not just my work, so I try to make my life as meaningful as possible. I'm also intrigued by the idea of love, giving, service, accountability, gratitude, recreation, and reproduction.





CAREER



I run a design innovation outfit through which I consult for companies and collaborate with internal teams to help rethink processes, uncover insights, build systems, and deliver services that will enable their users, customers and enhance their businesses.

Previously, I worked in the e-commerce sector, helping to redefine the shopping experience for wholesale electronics.

VOLUNTEERING



I've been using my skills, gifts, talents, and resources to support causes that are important to me. Currently, most of my efforts are directed towards fostering design education and giving design mentorship.

Are you a budding or growing designer? Book me here.





EDUCATION



Although I'm self-thought, I explored creative technology for a postgraduate program. Projects explored and executed during this time can be found here. I also read computer science for my first degree. Asides from all these, I still take on independent studies to broaden my knowledge or explore something new.





USEFUL LINKS


I have a blog that I try to update quite often.

I enjoy visiting places and I try to take as many photos as I can. 

I have 5 public playlists on Spotify and my design portfolio also lives on a separate subdomain.





PROJECTS


I curate interesting places to visit in Lagos on @LagosPlaces - give it a follow!

I’m working on a media outlet to give data and reports on sustainable developments in Africa, starting from Nigeria.

Curious about the Christian faith? I’m also working on another media outlet concerning that.

More updates soon.
