Altamish joined the main stream Media in 2005 and his first job with an internship at a local Business Channel called SunBiz. In only 7 years, he has been able to reach a level of professionalism and credibility which has landed him exclusive interviews with some of the biggest names in sporting world from World Champion Boxer Amir Khan to Former World no1 Ana Ivanovic, the Giant killing Swede Robin Soderling and current World No 6 Jo Wilfried Tsonga. In addtion to his, he has hosted numerous shows with top Cricketers of Pakistan and England as well as ICC Umpire of the year Aleem Darr.
What makes Altamish different is that he hasn’t let his success stop him from spending quality time covering local sporting events in the impoverished areas of his hometown Karachi like Maach Goth, Lyari, Empress Market, Yousuf Goth, Orangi town. Covering local communties and bringing them to the mainstream gives him the sense of satisfaction and happiness that is essential for an all round personality.

His most memorable moment is visiting the Theater of Dreams the home of Manchester United Old Trafford where he had a chance to interact with the best players of Manchester United as well as Sir Alex Ferguson.
