I am a print media journalist, a blogger and a photographer based in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. I am working with a Lahore-based English paper, Daily Times in its Karachi office as environmental reporter. Though, I am basically an environmental journalist but I also cover health, wildlife and water, wetlands and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) issues.

I am also a media fellow of UK based WaterAid’s media fellowship programme 2009-12.

In 2011, I was selected for the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), the U.S. Department of State's premier professional exchange program and visited five states and nine cities of USA for twenty-two days. The topic for IVLP fellowship 2011 was the "The New Faces of American Journalism and Activism: Blogging and Social Media".

I have contributed reports, feature stories, investigative reports and analysis for different local, national and international publications including BBC (Urdu), The Times (English), Dainik Jagran, India (Hindi), The Himal SouthAsian, Nepal (English) and also for Pakistani local and national newspapers including Daily Times (English), Pakistan Today (English), Weekly Kolachi section of the News on Sunday (TNS) in English, Regional Times (English), Dawn.com (English), Daily Kawish (Sindhi), Tameer-e-Sindh (Sindhi), daily Sindh (Sindhi), Monthly Faroozan Magazine (Urdu), Fortnightly Affair Mag (Sindhi), Dastak (Urdu).
