Sapuri*D is Khurram A. Siddiqi, refusing to grow up- because “you’re only young once, but you can be immature forever”.
I was born in Lahore, and was raised in both Pakistan and Saudi Arabia (my dad taught architecture in Jeddah and Dhahran). I went to school at Purdue and the University of Southern California where I studied electrical engineering, and English. After grad school I went to work at Cypress Semiconductor in Northern California , from where I returned to Lahore in 2009 to take the plunge back into my Pakistani roots- which seemed to be getting weaker and weaker with every day I spent abroad on an H1-B. I float in and out of mad love for the city I was born in – Lahore, because it’s given me all I ever needed. It gave my parents all they ever needed to make their way forward in life, and this is why I thought I had to forsake all the goodies and comforts that came with California living, to uncover Lahore’s urban beauty, since it’s been hurting a lot over the last few years.
I now teach at FAST-NU in Lahore, and work on photography, music, video and interactions on my own time, and am actually always looking for people to collaborate with on design, technology and teaching.
