Moazam Khan shares his story at the Phoenix Design Storytelling event at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts on April 16, 2016.

KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Moazam Khan’s parents are Pakistani immigrants but he grew up in Chicago. When he was in high school, Moazam planned on being an engineer like many of his family members, but soon learned that architectural design was his true passion. He and a friend started a design business in Phoenix and things were going well. Moazam’s parents, however, thought it was about time he got married so his mom started the search for available women…

Moazam Khan is the co-founder of MoD a+p.

The next storytelling event is Monday, July 11 at the Crescent Ballroom in Downtown Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit
