A little bit about me, what I do and why I do it.

Long story short

I’m an architect turned UX | UI designer based in Jordan with over 7 years of experience working for great companies like Samsung and Mawdoo3. I believe in the ‘Form follows function’ principle and aim to bring beauty to structure. I am detail-oriented. My design aesthetics are clean, contemporary and quirky.

More about me, if you're really bored

Born in Iraq in 1991 ( Yes, I am a war baby ) moved to Jordan because, you guessed it, war, in 2005. Struggled to find my identity while trying to fit in. So basically, just like the story of all high school movies. 

I decided to study Architecture because I have so much creativity locked inside and no way or idea on how to let it out ( I have no hobbies 😅 ). I worked in Germany for about a year as an architect and realized that this was not working for me; I was only told what to do and how to do it and not be creative. 

I took what I learned in Architecture on how to design better environments for humans to be happy and productive and started implementing it in my work as a UX/UI designer for a gaming company. ( Fun fact: I didn't know what UX really means at that point 😬 ) from then began my journey into learning and working as a UX designer.

As for my personal life ( don't worry, I am not going to overshare ), I am happily married to my best friend and have the cutest boy in the whole damn universe (undebatable). I love traveling, watching movies, documentaries, TV shows, basically all of the categories on Netflix, yes, even Standups.
