Thrive: WeWork volunteer platform

Vente: an event app
Vente is a mobile responsive platform that reimagines how people can search and find activities that reflect their interests. I took user research conducted by a UX team and produced high-fidelity designs, prototype and design system solution.
Aloe: food and sustainability
Winkel is a start-up that wants to improve the way people shop for groceries online. I determined the users’ needs and goals then developed a mobile shopping app by applying a user-centered design approach based on my UX research.
I work with new media, photography, socially engaged art and performance. My most notable projects include “Visiting Thahab”, a rich exploration of the contemporary presence and experience of the Muslim femme. I create immersive works that examine elements of our lived experiences as they intersect with identity, politics, and queerness.
Since 2014, I’ve organized and curated performance and new media works in collaboration with organizations and artist-run platforms. I am a current programmer at The Nightingale, a microcinema in Chicago.
Thahab explores the identity of a muslim american femme in post 9/11 diaspora.
