Inspiring my team to climb new mountains and not settle for anything ordinary, I consider myself a friend cum instructor for my team, ensuring everyone feels at home, owns their work and enjoys while they are at it. I encourage my team to consistently come up with new ideas, and everybody is allowed to voice whatever is in their head, and they are not judged for that, rather encouraged. With me, everyday is a new challenge, because I prefer to take on challenges head on rather than avoiding them. I consider myself a leader who inspires, creates magic, sends long emails to motivate his team.
The Head of Operations and Client Management at Walnut Media, I consider my work challenging and exciting. My position in the organization means that I have a firm hand in everything that goes around here. I prefer maintaining a relaxed and friendly relationship with my co-workers but at the same time, I get the right job done, at the right time, in the right manner.
I believe in taking on life as it comes. I consider myself to be a leader and a team member at the same time by having a firm grasp on human behavior, which allows me to get the best out of my team by incentivizing them when necessary and encouraging them to aim even higher at all times.
A self taught musician and guitarist of the band SYMT, I work as the music producer at Walnut Studios. My ideology of doing something positive for Pakistan drives me to identify and invest in talent, because I believe they deserve that chance. To the extent that the most talented and deserved artists get the production facilities for free!
At Walnut Media, I am in charge of Art Direction. I believe in providing creative flair to all projects that we receive through innovation and generation of new ideas.
My fascination in the digital medium stems from the fact that all three of these elements culminate on a digital level. I believe it's all about visual communication and I do it through Still, Motion and Interactive with the flavor of Art & Creative direction.
What I do is exciting, and I love doing it!
I am in charge of animations and video editing at Walnut Media and it is something that I am very passionately involved with. I provide the gateway for creativity for every project by providing the colors and animations that bring every project to life.

As an Account Manager, I have realized that learning is a process that never ends and there is something new to explore every day. I believe that your success is only related to how dedicate you are to what you do & how much fun you have while you do it. I cherish what I have learned and the friends I have made along the way.
I have a passion for food, dancing, reading and a good sense of humor which I incorporate in my daily routine. Balancing home, work and a social life is all in a day’s work and sometimes the magic is when you combine both.
Starting off my career at Walnut Media has been quite inspirational and I have learnt a lot from my team mates. As Media Manager, my role pertains to media planning and buying for our clients and brands. We enable our clients to maximize the impact of their advertising campaigns through digital media online.
From Radio to Publishers, Television to Digital, working among different mediums, I have gained a lot of experience and enhanced my role as a Media Planner/Manager.
Creative things excite me. Creative people inspire me. Currently working as an account manager for Unilever brands, my job is to take care of anything and everything my brands do on the digital realm. One of the main reasons to work at Walnut Media is that here, I feel I can live my dreams because the people I work with have the same aspirations as me.
All my life I’ve had an avid interest in music. I’ve represented Pakistan internationally with my experimental garage-band called 4Paee when we went to Brazil to compete in an event & managed to secure 4th position. I’m also the lead vocalist of a Progressive Metal band called Odyssey with 2 original albums under our belt. Other than that, I’m a certified foodie, and love to watch movies and TV shows.
Walnut Media has given me the platform to convert my creativity and imagination into veracity. My job as an account manager is very exciting, where I develop and execute plans, campaigns, and ideas for my brands. And it gets more exciting, when time and resources abstains from execution, but somehow, team Walnut finds a way to success.
No one can match my creativity, foresight and imagination. My sixth sense helps me to assess human resource qualities. I tend to fix the person better than a surgeon.
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
As an HR & PR Manager, it is my responsibility to make sure that every aspect of the company is managed expertly. If constructive thoughts are planted positive outcomes will be the result, which is what I do.
At Walnut Media, I am not only learning and evolving as a Professional but also as an Individual.
“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided”.
Simply put, I am an IT genius, which will come as a surprise because I am also a passionate sportsman. So, yes, I break the conventional bounds of an “IT Nerd”.
Having said that, I am still in charge of all IT operations at Walnut Media and I have been doing this for the past two years. During these two years, I have learnt and done a lot, but I am always striving to achieve more and take my work to the next level. And I hope to continue doing that for Walnut Media.
Dreams only come true if you have the courage to pursue them. To materialize your dreams into reality you have to chase them hard. I believe in hard work, because sooner or later, it always pays off.
At Walnut Media, I manage Finances & Admin. I am a person who is big on sports, food and traveling. Having graduated with a degree in Accounting & Entrepreneurship, I joined Walnut Media where I’ve learn't to make things big!
At Walnut Media, my work is to focus on Facebook applications as creative associate/graphic designer. I try my level best to bring something out of the box. With the magic of colors and creative concepts, I add energy to Design.
Every day is a new challenge; I strive hard to produce the best innovative designs. I am fond of taking risks, which at times is really challenging but for me, it’s like an adventure which adds unpredictability and freshness to my life.
"Dedication. Loyalty. Friendship. The choices we make reveal the true nature of our character."
I take life as it comes along, love the challenges, love obstacles and in between that what I love the most is overcoming all of them and be better than what I was. I strongly believe that Life is dynamic and we should get as much as we can from it and learn from our failures and mistakes, rise up and be Strong.
I am good at what I do, and I love proving that to everyone !!
"No one's special. Try to find the extraordinary in the ordinary."
We were born to make and manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Life is as easy as you want it to be, and as difficult as you want it to be.
So stop being afraid, test your limits and be the real person you are and not what others want you to be.
'A renowned session bass player and band member of Symt working as an Account Manager and currently working on 'Pakistan Superstar' at Walnut Media.
I love music and I love exploring new opportunities. I'm grateful for anything that reminds me of what's possible in this life. Books can do that. Films can do that. Music can do that. It's so easy to allow one day to simply follow into the next, but every once in a while we encounter something that shows us that anything is possible, that dramatic change is possible, that something new can be made, that laughter can be shared.
That's what drives me and keeps me going.
"Beauty, truth, friendship, love, creation – these are the great values of life. We can’t prove them, or explain them, yet they are the most stable things in our lives."
I love who I am and don't like limiting myself. I love to fly, fly high as many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
I love life and I love myself.
"A dream doesn't become reality through magic;it takes sweat, determination and hard work."
