  • Bio

    When I was younger my family moved around, we went from Pakistan, to London, Detroit, a couple of other places, and then back to Detroit. Had a lot of different experiences in those cities, but in each I ended up falling head over heels for at least one local sports team. Sadly, I have had bad luck in the home teams that I ended up falling for – my Pakistani cricket team routinely throws game and my hometown Detroit Lions haven’t had a winning season in awhile. Anyhow apart from my disappointing relationship with my sports teams, I spend a lot of time reading (right now The Emperor of All Maladies and The Looming Tower are sitting on my nightstand) and traveling (recently visited Thailand). I received my BA in political science and economics from the University of Michigan and am currently working for the Center for Effective Philanthropy in Cambridge, MA.
