A big fan of the outdoors, Ahmed successfully climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro with his brother, the triumph of which helped him realize that "anything you put your mind to is possible." Ahmed is now involved in architectural design and development as well as virtual reality development. He has cultivated his passion to develop visual arts that help shed light on the beauty below the surface of nature and showcase the magic of life on earth. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ahmed has lived around the world, including being raised as an American in Pakistan before returning to the US to complete high school and college. Afterwards he lived and worked in New York and has recently completed a project while living in the Indian Ocean Islands of the Maldives. His travels from Lake Michigan to the Maldives have exposed him to the tremendous beauty of our lakes and vast oceans, as well as the fragility of our eco systems. He is very familiar with the challenges as well as the opportunities for progress in helping keep our beautiful planet pristine for future generations and hopes to shed light on that with his work.
