I love exploring different cultures, am artistic, passionate. Born in Kabul, raised in DC, schooled in Glasgow and Chicago, worked in LA. I have traveled ever since I could walk (thanks Mom ;) Am very positive and progressive both in my own life as well as in politics, design, music, etc. The smaller things in life are what I enjoy the most. Fight for the underdog, help the helpless, humanitarian, love my gay community, and support my Afghan community as well.
I'm pursuing an MFA in fashion design, and already hold a BFA, with a concentration in architectural design and conecptual theory. I would eventually like to combine the two disciplines under one roof.. in my own studio.
Ultimately would like to find someone to spend my time with when I come home from class, or go out together, cook together, etc. Someone around my age would be ideal, but maturity and humour are found in anyone.
Moving to London in September.
Camus, Poe, Burgess, Gibran. Old, antiquated books on whatever subjects, I'm big on history and absorbing as much as possible.
Bowie, Siouxie, Smiths, Morrissey, Ladytron, Lata M, Leila F, Ahmad Z, Architecture in Helsinki, Kylie, Jill Scott, Kings of Leon, Bat for Lashes, Pulp, Radiohead, Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, Cure, U2, Sons & Daughters, Rufus Wainwright, Lauren Hill, SWV, Tribe, Ri Ri.. I don't discriminate.
Afghan, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Italian, French, American, Turkish.. and more.
Kubrik, Burton, Gondry, Hitchcock, Masterpiece Theatre, Mystery!, Poirot. I do like mindless, stupid, action, dude/chick flicks from time to time.
Love, Loved ones, will I find Love, what love is..
How we can better ourselves, others, society ;)
Cooking, staying in, watching a movie / sketching.
And I'm more passive in that all important category ;)
