My name is Funmi,

rhymes with roomy.

It's short for Oluwafunmilayo, Yoruba for "God's gift of joy."  I used to hate that it was hard for people to say – first days and new teachers always made me so nervous. But if you can pronounce Dostoevski or Worcester or Geoff, then I'm sure you will be alright.

I'm a writer, among other things. I like to see the big picture, and I like to bring crazy, far-out, moonshot,    "No way!", head-ass ideas to life. I think creativity is going to save the world. And I think I'm going to

be a part of it.

Currently @ Wieden+Kennedy NY
