A little bit about me

I am currently a senior product designer at Multonion, and I was formally the lead UX developer at Byteworks, working on Expira business engine. Previously, I was working on Konar Logistics at SQT Web Solutions. I also developed frontend mockups for slate.ng on the Slate Africa team, and before that, I worked with eHealth4Everyone, designing and developing the frontend for products like the DHIS2 and HealthThink.


Originally from Nigeria, I studied Computer and Information Management Sciences and minored in Human-Computer Interaction Design at Covenant University.


My passion for design started with my fascination for art and music in high school. I discovered digital design in tech during my time at university, and have been a designer ever since.

I initially started my journey as a software developer with Java, then frontend web development with PHP. Over time I picked up other skills with NodeJS, React, Angular and React Native. This was until I decided to focus mainly on UX Design.


I love listening to music while I work (or basically while doing anything else).


So here are some of my favorite Spotify playlists: Work moods, LoFi Sounds, Happy Times

What I do in my free time

  • Writing and banting

    I like to write and share my thoughts on what I know whenever I can.

    I write majorly on design (Designer's Ken) and coding (Coder's Ken). And the occasional wattpad stories 😁

  • Visit art shows

    Whenever I can, I go for art galleries, exhibitions and photography showcases around me.

    They don't happen too often where I am but I love the inspiration I get from admiring those works. I would love to visit the Louvre Museum someday 🙂.

  • I make music (kinda)

    I'm no musician (sadly), but I do love music and art exceptionally.

    Occasionally I like to dabble with instrumentals and sound. Check me out on BandLab :: SoundByRaymond🥁 and let me know what you think 😁.

  • Lil bit of an Otaku

    When I was in high school I was a bit shy about this but I have come to openly embrace this side of me.

    I love anime, and I love experiencing other people's culture through cinema since I don't travel all that often. Plus it's really fun.

  • Tutoring others

    Like I mentioned I love sharing knowledge.

    Over the years I have tutored and mentored many people on platforms like LinkedIn, ADPList and in person.

  • Learn new languages

    This is a recent hobby I picked up a few years ago.

    Whenever I can, I practice new languages that can come in handy when I eventually start traveling 😅. Currently I speak English, French and a little Japanese.
