United Arab Emirates

Over 10 years of experience in the field of Media, Design and Communication. I am currently part of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Department in the Ministry of Education, heading the Innovation Incubation programs section. I’ve joined the Ministry of Education to be part of shaping the future of the coming generations, for what else is more important that empowering youth and continuously working towards raising the quality of education and providing the best resources and expertise? Along with my current job, I’ve been running a design business in my free time since 2010.I am an emerging Emirati Artist who has showcased in twoseasons of Sikka along with collaborating with Dubai Culture & Arts Authority as well as other entities, in a variety of commissioned Artworks.My latest artworks have been of an installation nature, allowing me to be myself, and use as much techniques as my heart desires. I was featured in the talent directory/book “Mawahib” as one of the 35 Emirati’s in the design, photography and illustration field. Also, I was highlighted in a number of online and offline publications such as Al Bayan News Paper & Time out Dubai.I believe that having exposure and experiences in different fields shaped the person I am today, and gave me the confidence of having different perspectives to each challenge or opportunity that arises.
