Who is the most inspirational person in your life?

I’ve never established a ranking of inspiration. I’ve always felt inspired by way too many people and sources. My parents have always been most important to me.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? 

I would change my location during the next blistering Karachi summer.

How do you unwind?

Play golf, swim, learn something new, read a book or do nothing at all.

What is your favourite childhood memory? 

One of the really special ones is taking a jet ski from Pattaya Beach, while being dangerously close to an aircraft carrier anchored off the coast. It was definitely one of the most dangerous things I did as a child but I had an extreme desire to see planes and was totally fascinated by aircraft carriers.

What is your spirit animal? 

I feel quite sure it’s a big cat of some sort. Like a white tiger, black panther or a snow leopard.

Name a movie that has made you cry. 

The Lion King

Three things you cannot live without.

Food, water, air.

If you were offered to live in any corner of the world for the rest of your life, where would you want to go?

I’m happy enough living in Pakistan. But I'm very interested in getting the chance to see as much of Japan, China and Turkey as I can. I have an insatiable travel bug within!
