About

Hey there!

Thank you so much for stopping by to my corner of the internet. 

My journey innovating in the world of food started when my late father was on a special diet to manage some health challenges. The experience opened my eyes to challenges people face and created a curiosity in me to better understand how food interacts with our body to impact our health. This has shaped my research interest and direction.

In 2015,  I founded FoodNiche Inc. a company that leverages thought- leadership and strategic partnership to promote a healthier food system. For more than 5 years my team and I  team bring together stakeholders in the food industry together for thought-provoking conversations on building a stronger food system.  Annually, we host  the FoodNiche® Tech Summit (formerly Disrupt Food Summit) and FoodNiche® Global Health Summit .

 More recently, I founded FoodNiche-ED which makes it easier for teachers to introduce nutrition education in classroom. A community-centric platform that empower teachers to make science education more applicable, engaging and impactful. Along with her team, she is taking bold steps to tackle childhood and adolescent obesity through nutritional education through the platform FoodNiche®-Ed (formerly YSCooks).  

I enjoy writing and I often share my success strategies that I have found beneficial here. I have contributed on authority sites such as Forbes, Thrive Global, and Entrepreneur.

I married my best friend Bunmi in 2006, we live in NJ with our two boys.
