This is me

Sameer Ahmed Khan

Something about peace

I'm CEO & Co-founder at "Social Champ" and "OuzelSystems". Social Champ is a social media scheduling tool used by smart people to reach more audience and share quality content in a simpler manner. OuzelSystems is a tech consulting firm where we code the dreams of our clients into reality.

Fundamentally I’m an introvert, a geek having tech powers in MEAN Stack and Cross-platform Hybrid app development using Grunt, Bower and SASS. Time taught me UX-UI, Graphics & Video Editing too.

Learning from my mistakes in "GameOChat", "Educating Dreams" & "RemindZapp" I do a number of speeches in universities, podcasts and webinars; hoping that from my experience I might save some years’ worth of mistakes of new entrepreneurs and share how we started as a tech-startup.

In my free time I; compose poems, craft articles, teach in Karachi University as a visiting faculty, conduct technical workshops on behalf of Nokia and Microsoft Pakistan. However, I don’t get that free time anymore. And when I do, I spend it with my family & friends.

The very first time I dived into the ocean without life jacket was also the very first time when I jumped from the cliff without a life jacket. Crazy cliff jumping experience. I love snorkeling and also hiked up to a mountain +13,000 ft above and watched "Ansoo Lake", a frozen lake in shape of a tear drop - even clouds were below us. I love nature & adventure.

And if titles matter, I received my early education in Qatar, later achieved 2nd position in Bachelors' Degree in Computer Science from University of Karachi, Pakistan. I'm also a Former Nokia Developer Champion, Microsoft Certified Professional & Specialist, Microsoft Community Speaker and former Microsoft Student Partner.
