He co-founded DZYN Studios in 2007, an architecture visualization and graphic design company based in Ghana while he was still a student.He is currently involved in various projects towards sparking a creative revolution in Ghana due to his strong belief that creativity and design are the answers to most of our national development issues. This strong belief led to the founding of MESH Ghana, a non-profit organization that focuses on creating opportunities for MEETING, EXPLORING and SHARING among creatives with the aim of harnessing that creative energy towards national development.In recognition of his efforts in organizing and empowering the creative community in Ghana, he has delivered a guest lecture at Ashesi University, been featured on the KSM Show and on various radio and online publications. He was also selected by Future of Ghana 2016 awards as one of 30 under 30 Ghanaian change-makers globally, while MESH Ghana has been recognised as one of “100 Globally Competitive Startups in Ghana” by TANOE as well as recognition by Africa Rizing as one of “The change-makers, innovators and next generation leaders to watch”
Over the last few years, MESH Ghana has organized 5 MESH Confabs which bring out over 300 Ghanaian creatives to share ideas and inspire each other, two MESH Lab projects towards shaping the built environment and published over 50 videos on MESHTV spotlighting outstanding creative individuals, events and projects.
Being an architect, he is very passionate about the built environment and anything related to it because he believes that it is only when we have a sound environment that we can live our lives to their full potential. He is a very optimistic Ghanaian and this manifests in his belief that we can turn Ghana into a modern utopia in the next ten years as long as we harness Ghanaian creativity at its full potential.
