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

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 

Moazam Khan’s parents are Pakistani immigrants but he grew up in Chicago. When he was in high school, Khan 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. Khan’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 July 11, 2016, at the Crescent Ballroom in Downtown Phoenix.
