Coming from an architectural background, my interest in human-centric design had naturally moved from the spatial human experience and into the digital world. and I found myself applying lessons learned from the spatial human experience into the digital world, and this is where I discovered User Experience Design. I signed up for Design Lab’s UX Academy, where I learned the ins and outs of the industry. Now, I am on the lookout for UX opportunities, while trying to raise awareness about UX and user-centered design in Dubai and the Middle East.
I’ve been making things since as long as I can remember, whether it is little toys that I play with as a child or a custom-made laser-cut jewelry, I have always been a maker… this, in addition to being a visual person, contributed in me pursuing architecture in New York and worked as where I developed an obsession about the spatial human experience. I graduated with honors and went on to work as an architect, and then as a design manager, designing for the human experience, at a spatial level, working for major hospitality and retail firms worldwide.
When I am not designing, I might be hopping on a plane to a random Southeast Asian destination, taking photos, or really messing up a new cooking recipe.
