Having inherited my mom’s design genes, who was an architect, and had a furniture designing business the short while we were in Pakistan. I was always fascinated by everything that she did, as a young girl. She was my role model.

And like many designers, who as kids would change their rooms around and have blossomed into amazing designers, I was no different. I too liked to change things around and play around with colors in different pieces. As much as I was inspired to become an Interior Designer, my degree was in Marketing, which in hindsight wasn’t a bad idea to have under my belt, because that’s what would promote my passion. My mom saw that I truly was passionate about becoming an Interior Designer, she enrolled me in a correspondence course, with NewYork Institute of Art and Design.

Before I completed my design course, I lost my mom to Hepatitis C. After taking two months to gather myself, I was now determined to complete the course that she got me started with, it became my outlet and dedication to my late mom. 

Ever since I engrossed myself with anything and everything that I can get my hands to learn the business of design while taking on projects, and learned how to fine-tune my processes to bring a clear step by step process that helps you understand and know what to expect throughout the project phases. I attended networking events, and design market events, continuing education webinars, to develop both personally and professionally.
