Salman Ansari


👋🏽 Hi! I’m Salman

I live my life embracing my inner polymath, wearing different hats — startup founder, CTO, web & iOS engineer, teacher, writer, illustrator and DJ, to name a few.

This website is a digital garden for my writing—essays, notes, newsletters and more. Writing online has changed my life for the better in so many ways. It has opened new doors, helped me build self-awareness, and fostered new friendships. Most of all, it gives me a channel to discover and express my truest self. If you’re curious to explore the power of writing, be sure to check out my free writing guide.

📖 Book of Fables

I’m writing and illustrating a book of fables. Inspired by books like The Little Prince, it’s filled with tales that feed the soul, tug the heart and spark the mind. The book is currently in revision stages, and I’ll be looking into publishing it soon. In the meantime, check out some of my published flash fiction: The Boat of Stillness, Point Price, and Holy War.
