What is your favorite thing about working for Habitat? Meeting new customers, finding new ways to help others.

Oh, and how can I forget making coffee for the staff! [Editor's note he also brings Panera sweet treats in for the staff regularly and crashes all of our diets!]
What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy praying at the mosque, spending time with my children, and playing with my 3 grand-cats.

Favorite meal: This is hard, I enjoy eating all types of food! I love desi (Indian/Pakistani) cuisine, as well as Chinese, Italian, and Mexican food. I also enjoy trying new food.
Dream vacation: Hanging out at the beach, enjoying the water, fresh air, and the delicious seafood!
Do you have any strange hidden talents? I cook delicious Indian/Pakistani food!
