Washington, DC by the way of Karachi, Pakistan

I am a designer and illustrator based in Washington, DC. I love samosas and have been making tangible and intagible things on the internets since 2011.

 I’ve always had full-time dayjob mostly in non-profit and social enterprises, so while I almost always find myself in an endless cycle of creation, I’ve never really considered becoming a full-time artist.

 A lot of my work has similar themes: I frequently take 2 or more ideas and add my own spin to them, combine elements from around the world and use words and visual media to make .. pieces. Cities is also a very strong thematic element in almost all of my work.

 I am also passionate about startup, youth, tech, travel and social media.
