    Sarah belongs to a brood of professionals willing to experiment and take upon themselves newer and fresher challenges each day.  She is an interesting package of an architect and journalist rolled into one.

    Sarah has been a part of the publishing industry and has contributed to several national and international publications. As Regional Editor of ‘Architecture+,’ she has worked in close tandem with programs initiated by the Dubai Municipality and has also been a core organizer of the Architecture+ Awards and a founding member of RIAD (Regional Institute for Architects and Designers). An active team-builder, she has been regularly involved in putting together events, conferences, seminars and lectures. 

    Being an avid talker, Sarah’s newer interests have been blogging, moderating panels and conducting interviews.  She also has a keen passion for travel and Indian Classical Music.
