I am a passionate architectural designer who translates concepts into beautiful designs. My love for this work grows every time I see a project built. My work includes international commercial, residential and institutional projects. I have team-based architecture office experience where I learned to problem-solve with peers and overcome project challenges.

As an Iraqi refugee I have been fortunate to find work in my field despite devastating economies and armed conflict. Now, as a United Nations refugee living in New York and fully authorized to work in the U.S., I hope to continue pursuing my dream of helping design the world’s greatest buildings.
