Kareem Obey


Kareem’s three passions are art, architecture, and alliteration. Prior to joining Workshop AD, he worked in small design firms in Vancouver, Canada, while completing his Master of Architecture at the University of British Columbia. Kareem received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Art from the College of William and Mary, where he had the opportunity to spend a summer studying architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark. In his spare time, he can be found painting the bright landscapes of the region or the shadowy interiors of his apartment. Having grown up moving through six countries across three continents, he’s now at home with his house plants in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood.
