Sakar is a technologist and an educator. The technologist in him sees that the world is malleable, both in the material and cultural senses, for those who find the right tools to mold it with. While the educator seeks to catalyze that same insight in others and help them build the tools to mold their own worlds with. He started Karkhana, an education focused makerspace, as a vehicle to catalyze a culture of experimentation and empower people to solve the problems in their own communities. Sakar earned his undergraduate degree in computer science from The Johns Hopkins University, and a graduate degree in Interactive Media Arts from New York University.
