Australia-- Reuben is a writer, journalist, illustrator and issue driven activist. During his career he has spent a large amount of time working and living in the Middle East and South Asia. He first visited Pakistan in 2005, just after the devastating earthquakes and has been returning to the region ever since. He worked as a journalist and documented the ever changing political landscape, the ongoing war with the Taliban and the impending US presence in the border regions.
Reuben has also lived and worked in Syria, where he was fortunate enough to experience the beauty of the region before the current conflict began. He was based in Damascus and formed a great love for the Syrian people and way of life.
Currently Reuben is the Co-Founder of Creative Ummah and hopes that it will inspire, empower and educate as many people as possible.
He also co-founded an initiative called Muslim Funaddicts, a project that actively empowers people to breakdown common negative stereotypes and misconceptions that continue to surround the Muslim community.
