Biggest risk You’ve ever taken: “At the age of 24, I left my home and family back in Pakistan. I came to this country with my wife, a child on the way and no job. I was unsure how it was all going to work out. This is the essence of the American Dream. God has been super kind to me and my family.”
Fun fact: “I was a lead vocalist in a pop band in medical school … ha ha!”
