About Folayo Lasaki
Principal & Founder of Striped Elephant
Growing up, Folayo Lasaki wanted to be a creative writer. But as any first generation American will tell you, that kind of thing doesn’t really feel like an option. Still, she went on to study the closest possible major: advertising and marketing. After school she took on a wide variety of roles in the entertainment industry including agent’s assistant, script reader and creative executive. She soon realized that her natural ability to use both her right brain and her left brain needed to take center stage in her life and career. So when a marketing job came along (with benefits, yahoo!) she made the leap. When she’s not helping her clients break through the B2C noise, she enjoys staycations and is actively learning to be a tourist in her own city.
