A new day
to see things differently. 

We stare at some of the same settings over and over again. We come home to a familiar place and we go to work where our environment hardly changes.  But even in this, exists a new way of experiencing. 

How we experience the world around us has always been a driving interest in my life. As a kid, I rearranged my room more times than I can count.  Now, how I portray the world around us has become an exciting and ongoing challenge that marries both our evolving experiences and how we see.

Whether I am photographing a building, working on a visual piece that seeks to communicate information, or rearranging my apartment, how a person understands and interacts with the work is essential to my approach and execution. 

 

5 random things about me:

1. I studied architecture at RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and became a photographer after graduating. Communicating through imagery became an even bigger passion. 

2. I've been an athlete for most of my life: currently a triathlete. Swim.Bike.Run.
I love all the doubt and mishaps that goes into any race, and the fulfilling joy of surprising myself. (Ironman some day?) 

3. I serve on the board and act as the lead photographer of the New York chapter of Open Architecture (formerly Architecture for Humanity).

4. My mom is arguably my best friend. (There are other contenders).

5. I attended a Muslim private school for my prime years (Pre-K - 12th)..
