I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and my parents immigrated from India in the 1970s. I was raised an Indo-Muslim household and went to French immersion school.
Being from Toronto, I integrated various cultural perspectives that surrounded me. This integration included my own queer cis-gendered male identity, my passion for enhancing psycho-social well-being of myself and others, and experiencing the tensions of local and global trends.
Across my travels - and recent settling in Zürich, Switzerland - I encounter people wanting to thrive through life's challenges not only to survive them.
