But you can call me Shu (pronounced like Shoe)
I'm an Interaction Design (or IXD as the cool kids say it) student current studying at Sheridan College. I was born in Pakistan (I'm good for filling up the diversity quota), however raised in Canada for the most of my life (Eh!). I like playing video games, binge-watching TV shows, and listening to albums on repeat.
To me design is the communication of knowledge, ideas, function and empathy. These things can converge in a multitude of different ways depending on what you are designing but I see all of them as important.
Right now, I volunteer my time to the Sheridan IXD Association as a member of their Design team. To find a summary of my professional experience and relevant design skills, take a glance at my resume.
