Nifraz was born and bred in Sri Lanka. A corporate animal for much of his life, Nifraz later traveled to London and Hong Kong on work, which he believes, aided in enhancing his understanding of his own identity and the power of stories.

He has already published two short stories. Nifraz is now based in Hong Kong and working on his maiden novel.
