"TRAPPED IN TODAY, ROOTING FOR A BETTER TOMORROW!"

I tend to describe myself as a young & energetic architectural design professional, researcher, and design thinker with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture. I am especially interested to work in- Architecture & Technology assemblage, Architecture of the future, Simulation-based architecture, and research on tech-oriented architecture. In the future, I would love to see myself as an impact researcher and mentor for energetic minds for later generations.

As a team player, eager learner, and organized modern-day youth, I have developed some skills in architectural drawing, 2D & 3D modeling, simulation-based designs, architectural visualization, presentation, public speaking, mentoring, and basic understanding of UX design & Programming. Presently I am based in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

I love to travel to new places, meet new people and read quietly in leisure. I am also enthusiastic about writing non-fiction articles on diverse topics and chatting about football.
