Oluwafemi Okusanya’s acting career began where his engineering career ended. In 2014 his love for using visual mediums to tell a story prompted him to leave the more logical and pragmatic profession of mechanical engineering and into the creative world of acting, directing, writing, and filmmaking. Oluwafemi has been fortunate enough to work with talented directors and actors building his portfolio as an actor, director, producer and editor. He has been featured in films such as My Name is Vivienne (2014) and Fixed (2014). His passion to find the truth in characters coupled with his free spirit personality attracts directors to bring him on a role to discover the humanity in each character.
