my name is usman shabbir, and i am a founder living in new york.

with my friend cory, i co-founded parallel where we are building a hiring stack for startups. if you care about how work intersects with our interests, please consider joining us.

on weekends, i spend time on an untethered coding studio, unscript, where i explore ways to leverage code to build internet native businesses. i also use the studio to write essays exploring code & culture.
