This episode I am joined by Designer and Digital Artist Peter Gould. BBC has been quoted as saying, “Peter is among those young urban global Muslims leading the emergence of a new Muslim cool.” Peter shares his journey into becoming the “go-to” man for Islamic organizations and companies around the world. His unique style has carved out an impressive international clientele. I’m extremely honored to have him on the podcast this episode.
