Faraday Okoro is a New York City based Nigerian-American filmmaker. Named after Michael Faraday, a 19th century English physicist and chemist, the idea of pursuing a career in science has been instilled in Faraday since birth. Though, despite his upbringing and name for that matter, Faraday was inspired to pursue a career in filmmaking after watching 20 minutes of the film Road to Perdition. Faraday has a BA in Radio, TV & Film from Howard University and is currently pursuing a MFA in filmmaking at the prestigious New York University – Tisch School of the Arts.
