My Story

Hello! I’m Okwukwe Davis – a practicing optometrist who fail in love with web design and digital strategy.

Like many colleagues in Nigeria, I intended to study medicine but fate led me into Optometry. Just simply accompanying a friend on his admission runs, I saw that my university entrance score was enough to get me into an outstanding school of optometry at Abia State University, Nigeria.

Though with the initial intention to switch to medicine, I have remained in primary eye care practice since 2002. Why? It is less demanding and allowed me time to pursue other passions.

Having managed an eye hospital in Nigeria, set up and supervised an optometrist eye clinic, I moved to Saudi Arabia for greener pastures. Like many professionals who come to Saudi, an initial plan to stay a few years turned to many years! Within those years came periods of self-discovery and personal development.

While looking back home, I noticed more optometry eye clinics and mission-driven small businesses spring up across Nigeria. I saw the need for a well crafted digital strategy for these establishments to remain sustainable and competitive.

There has never been a time when organizations needed more digital transformation than in this internet age. Nigeria as of 2017, remained the world’s most mobilized country with traffic of 81%-Twinpine.

To position myself to serve you better, I took several certifications in web design, graphic design, business management, and digital marketing strategy. My newfound love is exploring ideas to discover awesome excellence through web design and digital strategy.

I believe success is planned and executed through deliberate and purposeful design and strategy in building the You brand.

Your Vision, Your Mission, My Focus.

At the crux of the whole story is a love story made in heaven. I come back every day to my lovely Honeypie- Nwamaka. Together, we have a super son- Kosisochukwu and two angelic daughters- Kamsiriochukwu and Kaodirichukwu. When am not checking people’s eyes and exploring ideas on my computer or flipping through my phone, we love to dance to Nigerian music!

My Core Values

STRENGTH & PERSEVERANCE

I lean on the words of Dale Carnegie, ‘’Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.’’

VIGOR & FORESIGHT

Just as Stephen R. Covey said in this book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, I count it extremely worthwhile to always “begin with the end in mind’’.

INTEGRITY & TRUST

I subscribe to the words of Benjamin Franklin who said, ”Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no persuasion move thee, to do anything which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollity; for a good conscience is a continual Christmas”.

ESSENCE & VALUE

As pointed out by Steve Jobs “death is very likely the single best invention of life.” Life is a journey and purpose gives it meaning. 

Christ in me, the hope of glory.
Col. 1:27

MY Education,
Some Certifications
and Skills.

 

Many Nigerian Small Businesses, my Optometry colleagues and Rising Professionals need to embrace the digital landscape. To help, I began a series of studies in design, strategy, and management. I continue to acquire new skills and update along these fields as technology evolves.

Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn’t do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain
