Oyaks Airende: Baker Bio
Oyaks Airende, 28
Hometown: Calgary, Alta.
Occupation: Project scheduler and engineer
Originally from Nigeria, Oyaks has called Calgary home for several years and he has a huge group of friends who are big fans of his baking experiments. Oyaks' baking is inspired by his earliest food memory: his mom and sister making him a special cake for his fourth birthday. He's taken that memory and turned it into a passion for baking and cooking. As an engineer and IT worker, Oyaks has a scientific mind to go with his artistic eye. When he's not perfecting his signature red velvet cake, Oyaks plays tennis and enjoys fashion and landscape photography.
