the author

In addition to being a part-time social worker/psychotherapist, I'm a writer and strategic advisor for the Ontario government who has worked on a wide rage of public policy files.

I was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and emigrated to Canada at the age of six. I've worked on various projects internationally and locally that support marginalized populations. I'm particularly passionate about spirituality/faith, intersections between gender and religion, cross-cultural communications, and mental health. 

As a writer, I have a wide ranging portfolio, from government speech writing to screenwriting. I bring my interests to all of the fields I am a part of. 

On a more personal note, I love exploring new and unique places, countries, cities, towns, as well as the terrains of my mind on rainy days through good books and mind boggling psychological thriller films. I appreciate music and am currently picking up where I left off with my childhood harmonium lessons. You can also find me in the kitchen trying out new recipes or on long hikes in the middle of nowhere. I live in Ontario.
