About Me

Hi, I’m Ibukun Taiwo and I’m your friendly internet writer.

Get to know me in 3 minutes!

Passion

I really, really love the written word and I’m passionate about ideas and good writing.

I believe we all have stories to tell, interesting and sometimes unique opinions to share. The problem we all face is translating our thoughts to words – it’s hard and sometimes terrifying (something everyone who’s sat in front of a blank page will confirm).

I really enjoy helping people preserve the sanctity of their thoughts in the course of giving them expressing , ensuring nothing gets lost in translation.

 

Career and experience

I started out my career writing exclusively for a living. Moving up the career ladder meant taking on other responsibilities such as leading communications strategy, media relations, working with and training other  writers, videographers and designers.

Writing remains my first love though. Whenever I’m not stuck within the confines of an office space, I moonlight as a copywriter, editor and ghostwriter (whichever hat fits).

I’ve worked with technology startups, newspaper publishers, research institutes, non-profits, founders and activists.

My day jobs have been at TechCabal (Managing Editor), Enterprise54 (Technology Editor), and Buffrspace (Content and Communications Lead), in that order.

I currently lead Content, Media and Communications at the Sustainable and Inclusive Digital Financial Services initiative of Lagos Business School.

Through out my career, I’ve covered diverse subjects and themes — technology startups, coworking and the sharing economy, and fintech & financial services.

 

Business rationale

I love stories and I’d love nothing else than to spend all day reading them. But I can’t (because that’s toying with perpetual starvation). So, I do the next best thing which is writing and editing them.

I usually get paid for doing this.

I LIKE getting paid to do this.

I live in Lagos, Nigeria. But I’ve worked with clients from all over the world – Ghana, UK, Canada and of course, at home here in Nigeria.

Here are some of the ways technology is distracting me from the real issues facing the planet. Just in case you want to get my attention or send me work:
