ABID HUSSAIN
Founder/CEO/Creative Director 

When Abid is not climbing mountains in Peru, he may be found sitting in front of his TV, trying to impersonate Kevin Spacey while watching House of Cards or admiring his signed plaque by Game Of Thrones author George RR Martin. Geek personified when it comes to movies, Abid is the show runner at Creative Stew. From creating award winning content to directing the next TV commercial, he does it all. Homer Simpson, Gordon Ramsay and his 2 kids are the ones he admires the most. Wanderlust is his best friend and so is his specially curated music playlist on Spotify.
