San Francisco, CA, United States
"Obsessed about people, colour, cities, impact organizations & using Gestalt theory to connect tha dots!"
I'm a creative questioner and problem solver. My main professional focus is innovation within startups, education and cities. I strive to make the world’s complex things a little simpler to understand through clear communication. In other words, I spend my days curating 'simplexity'.
My first degree was Communications & Design, at the bauhaus-founded OCAD University. I later switched gears to pursue a masters in a traditional research methodologies program in urban design and architecture theory at McGill University. (I was chained to chair in a one square metered room for more than a year, learning about cities, housing, sustainability, agriculture and other theories of why people live the way they do).
I've been based in Jordan since 2011 and now reside in London.
My other interests include: dancing, baking, painting, biking, running and yoga.
