About Me


My name is Afra Naushad Ali Khan.

I am a creative entrepreneur who married two of my greatest passions - music & technology, to develop a music & digital media boutique called star beats studio & StarSurfer Media. 

I am an indulgent photographer and a lover of the written word. I come from a background in media and ran the first publication on electronic dance music (Verse 69) in Saudi Arabia that folded in the summer music season of 2016 in Ibiza.. 

I also produce music and DJ.

On this site you will find some of my published works on various subjects. Enjoy! 

And remember to connect with me :)
