Naseed Gifted is a two-time Glyph Comic Awards and Urban Action Showcase nominee, an educator, engineer and writer from Newark, New Jersey and the Creative Director of PBS Media. Something that was once a childhood hobby has since catapulted into a passion to change the face of comics. He realized that, first, a greater understanding of the complexities of the comic book industry was needed. This led him to an internship with a developing publishing company, as well as enrollment in a series of courses at New York University, including "Writing Graphic Novels and Comics", “Screenwriting” and "Storyboarding and Animatics.” His mission in his graphic expression is to encompass a distinct balance between unprecedented storytelling and exceptional artwork. He is also the founder of New Jersey’s very own Black Comic Book Festival “Khem Comic Fest” and travels across the country as a panelist for Full Spectrum: Why Color in Comics Matters and Using Comics to teach STEM. Published works include self-published sci-fi comic series: P.B.Soldier; Short stories: Occupy Renaissance City and Terrorist Act of 2011; and Director/Writer: P.B.Soldier “The Awakening” Short Film and P.B.Soldier Animated Short.
