When I was a boy, I loved to take things apart to see how they worked. Now, I love to use my creative and technical skills to put things together.

Fullstack web developer and creative

Hi, I’m Zayn, nice to meet you :)

I am a full-stack web developer with an arts background - I have had a lifelong fascination with technology and design.

My childhood was in a small Fijian village with no electricity, my teenage and adult life has been in metropolitan Australia - originally Melbourne, now Sydney.

My childhood is part of why I have been fascinated with technology my whole life - I wanted to know what all the buttons on everything did, and even now I still want to know how everything works.

When I grew up, I decided to pursue my other love, filmmaking, by “running away” to film school and studying visual effects. This experience has left me with a lifelong appreciation of visual aesthetic, storytelling, and animation which still shapes my affection for good UX.
