A Brief Timeline of me <3


1980

I was born in Karachi, Pakistan, as the second and youngest son to an East African mother and a Pakistani father.  They met in the Airline industry, and having traveled the, knew the United States would offer their family the best opportunity.


1983-1988

My family immigrated to Los Angeles, CA, where I spend my elementary years in the US Public Education system.  My friends were diverse, but Mexican influence was strong in my early years.


1988-1991

I made my first trip out of the United States, and got to spend two years with my Grand Parents in Pakistan, and spend a few months in Dubai, UAE.  I experienced the poverty and colonial influence of British in a mostly broken developing nation, missing everything about the US, like the music, the fats food, secular population, fun schools, and drivers who stayed in their lanes.  I came back to LA in 1989, to witness the fall of the Berlin Wall, the premiere of the Simpsons, and of course my Dodgers and Lakers.

In the 5th Grade, my father got the opportunity to franchise a Subway Sandwiches in Sacramento, CA.  he left just as Operation Desert Shield was building up to head in Kuwait.  Once we got to North Cal, we immediately fell in love with teh green belts, the polite people who always said, "Good Morning," or "Hello" and held the doors open for us.

A year later I experienced my first hate driven assault, because of Saddam, a class mate hit me in the face and tried to start a fight with me for being an Iraqi.  I was more American than anything else.  I was 11 years old.


1992

With my parents divorce, my mother took my elder brother and myself to stay with her family in Kenya, East Africa, for nearly three years.  I fell in love with Mombasa, and the Swahili sweets and culture in my tween years.  It wasn't until 1994 when I returned to Sacramento.
