Nnamdi was born in Lagos, Nigeria, the 3rd child out of 5 siblings. At the age of 7, his family relocated to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. During his family’s layover in London Heathrow Airport, coming from Nigeria and on their way to Winnipeg, he received his first comic book from his mother as a present. Nnamdi was instantly enthralled with drawing the human form, paving the way to a life informed and dedicated to design and art. When he turned 12, his family moved once again, this time to Dallas, Texas.
Starting his architectural career in retail, office, commercial and residential design, and now assisting in the design of educational facilities, Nnamdi has developed into a multifaceted designer. The skill set he has developed during his design career, partnered with his zest for solving problems allows him to absorb clients concerns and synthesize thoughtful and creative answers that address their unique design problem.
Nnamdi’s favorite hobbies include playing soccer, working out, traveling with his girlfriend, painting, drawing, reading and listening to music.
