Bio

Wasim is a media professional involved in everything from print publications to video production. He began his career writing for various Primedia and Conde Nast publications before founding a national newsstand print publication featuring everyone from Hunter S Thompson’s renown artist Ralph Steadman to influential political and philanthropic personalities The Sierra Club’s founder Carl Pope.

His attentive eye for detail and keen editorial sense led him to spend several years as a Senior Editor and Creative Director, producing and editing award-winning marketing and commercial videos and corporate media packages for Fortune 500 companies including Gap, Mattel, and Warner Brothers, featuring everyone from Heidi Klum and Tiger Woods, to Common, Beyonce, and Megan Fox.

Wasim currently creates photography and video assets for clients including VectorMount for GoPro, WhoHasItApp.com, Megan Racing, Drift101 and the PTTOW influencer marketing summit, an annual event bringing together influencers and power players from Quincy Jones to the Dalai Lama to the executives behind X-Prize, Quicksilver, Red Bull, and VICE Media. He is also one of 50 official Samsung Camera Imageloggers, making him a brand ambassador for one of today’s most innovative lines of mirrorless interchangeable lens camera systems, and is the creator and lead of popular social media platform Ello's official Outside Community, ElloOutside.

Muklashy also helped co-found an organic cafe in Santa Barbara, California, and has done media work for The Annenberg Foundation, USC’s Marshall Schools Of Business’ Social Innovation program, and award-winning producer and TEDx presenter Frank Fitzpatrick’s Earthtones foundation, dedicated to ‘transforming the human spirit through the power of music and film,’ including an interactive digital publication designed for the arts and music curriculum for the nation’s schools.

He devotes much of his time to various humanitarian and environmental causes, currently serving as a volunteer docent in the California State Park System, where he has self-tasked himself to develop original multimedia assets to help bring more attention to our underfunded protected public spaces. He spends whatever time he has left documenting the state’s surrounding parks and landscapes through photography.

Wasim currently resides in Topanga Canyon, California.
