I’m an Emirati multidisciplinary creative with 15 years of experience in the realms of design, photography, and visual journalism. After obtaining a BA from Queensland College of Art in 2007, I started my design career working for The Letter D. and Museum of Brisbane. Later on, I completed an MA in Communication Design from Swinburne University in Melbourne, where I also documented some of the city’s urban typologies. Returning home to the UAE in 2013, I served as an infographic artist and content creator for The National and other media platforms at Abu Dhabi Media. In parallel, I have been on a quest to rediscover the UAE’s urban landscapes, through systematically documenting its overlooked modern architecture. I’m currently acting Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic AlArabiya Magazine based in Abu Dhabi.
