I was born in Nigeria, the youngest of five children. I moved to Canada when I was four and was raised in Scarborough, Ontario, in neighbourhoods that were considered to be "at risk". In those neighbourhoods, I learned hard lessons at a young age, about things like discrimination, desperation and death, but also about strength, survival and passion.
A graduate of the University of Toronto with a BA in Psychology, my upbringing and interest in the human mind both factor into the stories that I write. Stories that usually center around human monsters, social issues, and matters of morality. When I'm not trying to figure out the meaning of life and the fundamental nature of humankind, I am usually reading, running, falling down YouTube rabbit holes, or watching episodes of The Simpsons.
I'm the author of six books, including three novels, "The Corruption of Philip Toles", "Bug Spray: A Tale of Madness", the dystopian sci-fi thriller "2222", the psychological horror anthology "How To Make A Monster: The Loveliest Shade of Red", as well as the novellas "Viral Lives: A Ghost Story" and "The Fire On Memory Lane".
