DESIGNER BY TRADE.
I'm a multidisciplinary designer with a Masters in Design Entrepreneurship from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where I had the opportunity to study under the mentorship of design masterminds like Stefan Sagmeister, Milton Glaser, Gail Anderson and Martin Kace.
With over eight years of experience in various design fields, I've worked with agencies, design studios and startups on anything from branding to consulting to interaction design. Most recently, I was part of the User Experience team at Huge Inc., a digital agency in Brooklyn.
I'm also a founding member of AIGA Middle East, a startup mentor at Flat6Labs, an ambassador of On the Grid, and part of the Dubai team at Afikra.
I have been invited to speak at various conferences including Step Conference, Saudi Design Week, Tasmeem, ING Creative Festival, Nuqat, Ladies Dine & Design, Startup Weekend and Pecha Kucha.
ENTREPRENEUR BY CHANCE.
I'm currently focused on my own startup THIS Toothbrush, a product line that uses design and storytelling to revive an ancient, natural toothbrush called the miswak.
I'm based between the Middle East and New York and love meeting talented individuals with a passion for what they do.
I'm always available for a good chat or a fun collaboration, so feel free to reach out anytime!
