Founder & CEO
Hi! I’m the Founder and CEO of Rift Pay, Inc. I was born and raised in Nigeria and moved to the U.S at the age of 14. I attended Bishop Dunne High School in Dallas, Texas as a sophomore and spent the next 3 years at Dunne before graduating in the spring of 2015.
After graduating from Bishop Dunne high school, I attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas which is a few miles north of Dallas. Here, I managed to complete a degree in Computer Science and Political Science and currently awaiting graduation in May of 2020!
I have previously been involved in startups including Ipsi Robotics, Seeruvia and now Rift Pay. While I am the CEO, I also lead backend development of the Rift Pay system. My specialty lies in Node.js, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services technologies.
I have been inspired by many different people, but the most impactful to me so far has been my mother and aunt. My mother worked hard as a journalist for several years and my aunt is currently a high-level manager at Oracle now for the past 20 years!
My vision for Rift Pay is to create the first shareable banking platform that spans the entire globe and helps tonnes of people of any financial status!
Fun Fact: I’m a big soccer fan! Liverpool is my favorite team!
