This Is My Story

Originally from Lahore, Pakistan, but tend to live elsewhere. I was brought up in Kuwait. I did my university education from Malaysia and UK. I have a Master’s degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University of Birmingham, UK. I am an iOS Developer, and UI/UX Designer by passion. I am the founder of a social content publishing mobile application Leaflets. My academic research work has been around Radar, Navigation, UAV sensors and control, and autonomous flight. A key goal of mine is to improve myself continually, learning transferable and specialised technical skills whenever and wherever possible. I regularly participate in Massive Open Online Courses, you can find the details below. I like to read and travel. I am also a competitive squash player.

I like to create things. These days what I create normally takes the form of a website or an iOS App, but what drives me is the idea that somewhere out there what I’ve done has made somebody else’s life just a little bit better. I like to dip into all aspects of a build, from UX and design to the actual implementation. Some know this as being a hybrid developer (or maybe devsigner, horrible word), which isn’t particularly descriptive but I’m still waiting for a better term. The end result is that I find myself arguing just as passionately about information architecture, UI, typography and colour as I do about coding standards, algorithms, APIs and technical infrastructure. For me the user experience is something that permeates every layer of the stack, and I love all of it. All of it except for the context-switching at least, jumping between all the different layers in one day is hard.

That’s enough about me for now. Feel free to follow me on Twitter. If you wish to contact me directly, please click on the button below.
