About Mr. Future of Work


"He's always been a black sheep. He's always been a nerd." 

From growing up in the hot-as-hell Texas south bullied because of his Nigerian-roots to graduating Magna Cum Laude from Texas Tech University & the University of Texas with honors...

From hustling and working 3 jobs just to pay off his college tuition to becoming the only Nigerian-African American activist and global authority in the world championing the Future of Work and inclusive innovation with Fortune 500 companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and WeWork. He's been recognized by Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Linkedin, the list goes on.

Tim has always done things different.
