FRIENDS: Tunde Ogunnoiki

Tunde is one of those people I literally bumped into.  I was finishing my last quarter at SCAD’s Atlanta, GA campus and my homegirl BOSCO was having a business meeting at coffee shop and I decided to go and hang out.  At the meeting, I met Tunde.  Soft-spoken with mighty ideas, Tunde’s energy and excitement to create is more infections than any sticky-fingered kid’s cold.  This man is constantly on his grind and collaborating with his fabulous lady Oni.  Also, for your information, Tunde has a very precise trigger finger.  He took this of me a few days before I finished school and returned to Chicago.

And now, everyone, meet Tunde.  Creator of FRESH.i.AM…
