About Khyam

Growing up between national parks and various pixel worlds, Khyam never really wanted a desk job. In high school he was drawn to the sense of fulfillment and camaraderie among college theatre company members; working on the events, theatrical and musical shows the college produced.

At NIDA Khyam treasured his time and the work made with other students, tutors and mentors and developed an appreciation of draftsmanship. The plethora of projects propelled Khyam’s fascination with the visceral, emotive power of sound, and the connection it makes between the audience and the work, leading him to create encompassing designs with all the paperwork attached.
