Education: I graduated from the University of Washington '11 with degrees in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics. I was employed at Microsoft as an Developer in Test and then also as a Software Developer for five years. At the end of 2015, I quit my job at Microsoft to start a consulting venture with my colleague and after a few projects, we moved on to create our own startup, Wali.
Professional Experience: Aside from my startup ventures, I run my own real estate business. I purchase, renovate, flip and manage (my own) properties in both Seattle, WA and Philadelphia, PA. I recently became a licensed real estate agent in the state of Washington to further my expertise.
Outside Interests: When I'm not working on my startups, managing my properties, or doing real estate work, I indulge in my love for travel, music, and food. I spend most of my time in the company of my friends, family and my two dogs Ikabe and Byamba.
I am a certified Advanced Open Water Diver so when I can, I love to escape to the ocean below. I have dived in Hawaii, Mexico, Honduras and Bali so far.
My favorite underwater animal is the Eagle Ray!
Real Estate Goals: My strategy is to purchase run-down properties, rehab them, and rent them out to then add the cash-flowing property to my portfolio and finally refinance my costs back out.
I am looking to buy homes in any condition and development sites all over the Seattle area, please reach out if you have any good opportunities to share!
