abdullah syed

i am a queer artist / marketer based in washington, dc

i have been making stuff on and off the internet since 2007. I’ve started and participated in numerous projects, and my art-for-the-sake-of art generally revolves around food, pop culture, words, cities and their relationship with each other

i have a communications degree and have held day jobs in marketing and communications for 9+ years. my most impactful project was for USAID where i worked on a media campaign about counter violence and extremism. we directly engaged over 4mil young folks in karachi, pakistan via various digital media channels as well as through events, tv and radio

i have since made the transition to work in sales, and currently work for a SaaS startup, building partnerships between our company and large enterprises
