About

I am a designer + artist + organizer hybrid blending the past and the future to (re)imagine alternative narratives through art and events. Recently, I have been creating mixed reality installations based on themes in my life such as nostalgia, queerness, and immigrant identity.

In my professional life, I am an Interaction Designer at NIO creating user experiences for autonomous vehicles.

I grew up in Pakistan and moved to the United States in 2008. I hold a Masters in Interaction Design from California College of the Arts and a BFA in Graphic Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design
