Zair Abbas

Hello, I'm 29 years old and I live in Karachi, Pakistan.
I'm an UX Rockstar with 9+ years of extensive and diverse experience in a number of commercial projects. Solid understanding of web standards, usability and aesthetics, together with my sound knowledge on UX development, I have developed many Wordpress CMS driven websites, mobile responsive sites, portals and applications.

The thing that I was most impressed with him was his ability to fully focused on work, as I have observed him fully being involved in the project while working and beside that he was also very helpful and always keen to hear the QA issues and gives his feedback.
