I’m Khaled Abou Alfa, a Chartered Engineer living in Dubai with my wife and two sons. We are an Apple family and like it that way. This is my online stream and it’s powered by Micro.blog. If you’d like to comment on anything I write about, you should create an account, I highly recommend it.
I’m the writer/illustrator behind Stet.Build, a website dedicated to bringing concise publications about the built environment. The first publication is the monthly newsletter, In Abeyance, which you should totally subscribe to, it’s great (I may be biased).
My theme for 2019, is the Year of Release. In trying to get the most out of this year, I’ve finished and released the following projects:
- Calendar C01
- Stet.Build website
- In Abeyance, Issue 000
- In Abeyance, Issue 001
- In Abeyance, Issue 002
- In Abeyance, Issue 003
- In Abeyance, Issue 004
Engineering & Architecture
Engineering and the built environment has been part of my daily life since 2001 when I started working. I’ve had the pleasure of working on some truly amazing projects, with some truly exceptional people.
I’ve been a building services engineer for over 16 years now. As the years go by, it’s oftentimes difficult to remember all the projects as they quickly stack up.

One of my oldest and longest passions has been reading and to a much lesser degree making comics. So far the output has been limited to two single projects that have made their way online.
Coffee Beans is a 4 page short graphic story was created as part of the Observer/Comica/ Jonathan Cape ‘Short Graphic Story’ competition in 2009. Sadly the entry didn’t win, but I still like the story. This was my first full comic book story I’ve written and drawn.
An all-ages comic strip about Corgan and Alfie who live on the Moon — eating cheese & making noise.
