About Me

I’m a web geek, an entrepreneur and a lover of life. Good design and ingenious ideas inspire me. Great movies, upbeat music, tasty food, and a strong cup of joe lift my mood.
My interests include web development, web design, open source community, technology and web 2.0. Hobbies include photography, learning, reading, self-development and watching tv/movies.

Why Choose Aamnah?

Because i'm awesome =) And because i can help you in a myriad of ways..


Hello!

About me, i’m a random personality, doing random stuff. I like learning new things and am totally open to experience. I also like to do stuff that is ‘different’ and supposed to be ‘difficult’.

Most of the times i am a workaholic but i also believe in ‘il dolce far niente‘ so there are times when i stay up at nights and work long hours and there are times when i sit in the morning sun, drink tea and enjoy doing nothing.

I’m not sure where i’d fit on the geek-o-meter, but im pretty sure that im geekier than my real life peers.

I do what i do because i want to do it; not because i was taught to do it or i am supposed to do it.

What they say..


Aamnah is a great person to work with as she is able to manage her own time and continuously contribute to the organization. She is creative and a thought leader in the internet industry. Amir Anzur
Aamnah was such a pleasure to work with. She is detailed, fast, organized, and gave daily updates (which I really liked)! She does the work of an entire IT department by herself while having fun doing it! Hire her NOW!!!Erica King
Thank you for the great job you did in setting up my website. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone who wanted to set up a website. Shirley Roeloffze
Most excellent work, Aamnah! Your bonus was well-earned. You exceeded my expectations, finished the task very swiftly, efficiently, to my fullest satisfaction and communicating with you has been a pleasure. Francis Naisho
Aamnah is one of the most helpful and dedicated people I’ve had a chance to come across recently. She is honest about what she wants and expects the other person to be the same. Once she takes up a task, she’ll complete it with full dedication but if her heart isn’t in to something she’ll alert someone before hand instead of dragging on the task in to oblivion. Areej Mehdi
Aamnah Akram did a fantastic job for us. Our highest recommendation. We will continue to work with her on an ongoing basis. Ms Akram is very knowledgeable in Wordpress and Domain Hosting. Her english is perfect, better than 80% of my fellow Americans. Despite the time difference Aamnah was easy to get in touch with. Our project included rebuilding our main web site and 6 smaller sites. She transfered the domains for us and loaded the sites to our new VPS hostgator account. I have a working knowledge of WordPress but could not have done this without her constant help. You will not find a more qualified, professional, and helpful contractor than Aamnah Akram. Scott Simons
Aamnah was wonderful! She was so knowledgeable and very helpful with my project. My project was completed in less than 24 hours from the time I posted the job. I would highly recommend her for any project. She was truly delightful to work with. Kayla Zeiters

Awesome work using a theme that was new to her. Will definitely hire again! James Steele
