Portraits by Another Studio


An early passion for journalism pulled RKZ into creative writing, initially through music and poetry. He expanded this, becoming a feature writer for hip-hop blog Sampleface before taking over as UK Editor. In 2012, RKZ was announced as an ambassador for the Campaign Against Living Miserably. The charity aims to reduce the suicide rate of men in the UK, particularly London. Suicide is the biggest killer of men in the UK. He contributes to CALM's website and monthly CALMzine as a guest writer, focusing on depression in the Brit-Asian society.

He joined the Creative team at Born Social in June 2015, and progressed to Senior Creative the following year, before joining Turnbull & Asser as their lead Copywriter & Social Media Coordinator. His work as a content creator, writer and photographer has seen him work for brands including Tom Smarte, Brathwait, Kiehl's, Born Social and more. In 2016, RKZ returned to his University (Westminster) as a Careers Mentor for students looking to get into the creative industry in London.
