About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore the urban Amazon known sometimes as London!

ABOUT ME

One amazing city at a time!

Here I am in the Big Smoke ready to experience it's peculiarities and make some interesting friends. Get your bike out!

Grew up in Pakistan in a big city. Moved for a job to a very remote town after college. It made me understand why I used to write essays about "Life in a Big City" in my English writing class.

I love nature and hiking, climbing, skiing the mountains. But on the daily basis I prefer to be amazed by the creativity and quirkiness of humankind

Moving to Chicago for Grad school was a great start to a never ending adventure. Its freezing during winter but all the hustle and bustle makes you forget it. There is nothing like summers in Chi Town.

I get to work and meet people from all over the world and it makes me realize that how similar everyone is while being so unique at the same time.

Very interested in Politics. Wars, Genocides, Corporations, Abortion, Religious bigotry, All type of Phobias, Politicians, Economic exploitation of poor, Rights of Sex workers, Healthcare, Brexit, Refugees, Wikileaks, where is Snowden?..................... anything Leftist actually

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live!

Live music, art galleries, theater. I am no expert, but enjoy and appreciate the unusual and thoughtful. Pritzker Pavilion is one of my favorite place to be during summer in Chicago. Looking forward to explore the cultural scene in London.

I love food, cooking, eating, sharing! Spices, herbs, and fermentation can bring out amizing aromas and rollercoaster for the taste buds.🍷 & 🧀
