"I am a student of life, entrepreneurship, and humanity. As a child, I lived through war and famine. In college, I worked as a graveyard shift janitor where I was introduced to mindfulness. A serial entrepreneur since the early 90s, I have been traveling the world of innovation, cutting edge technology, and global businesses. My more than two decades of thought leadership stems from exploring the intersection of humanity, science, and technology.  I have been very fortunate to work with the leading companies, government agencies, and academic institutes across the globe.

I hold a strong belief that it is through knowledge sharing that we may provide the greatest clarity on how to improve our collective future. I roam globe with utter gratitude, and passionate about nature, people, culture, music, and design, and love to cook."  -  Excerpt from Faisal's Personal Story.
