Coder.
Maker.
Explorer.

Hello! My name is Ibrahim and I am a software engineer for News Corp. I am drawn towards beautiful code and a minimalist approach. I believe there is beauty in simplicity. My journey began in the Middle East and continued to South Asia from where I decided to come to Australia. I have a background in Computer Science and continue to be inspired by my community here in Melbourne. I am a coder, an optimist, an explorer looking to take on the world one challenge at a time.
