I am a teacher and designer currently living in Waterloo, Ontario. My teaching career started in 2006 when I received my first teaching assignment at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). I was wildly unprepared and had no clear sense of what this new job entailed. But the students were kind and teaching has provided me with a rewarding career ever since.

I expressed my thoughts on teaching during my TEDx talk "Teaching for the 21st Century" and in my Teaching Philosophy.

I currently teach User Experience Design at the University of Waterloo's Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business.

In 2018 I co-founded Carbonlabs, a design strategy agency with my friend and business partner Nada Basir
