Ali is an aspiring author, an avid foodie, an unfettered dreamer, a wanderlust traveler and an ambitious entrepreneur.
He is a syndicated columnist and writer at The Huffington Post, Business.com, Muslimness.com and The Muslim Vibe.
Over the past 13 years, his blogs, short stories, political commentary, musings, poetry and articles have encompassed topics from socio-economic, geopolitical, ethno-religious and humanitarian spheres, to short-stories in the genres of fiction, non-fiction and magical realism.
His pieces are anecdotal in nature; something the reader can take away from, thus enriching the reader's thought-process with an alternate view to things. A view that is both refreshing and inspirational.
His eventual goal is to one day publish his works as a collage of anecdotal pieces, reaching out to audiences of all demographics devoid of political or religious differences.
He believes that: “Words have a special place in this world. They have tremendous power to implement change; change within ourselves and to the mosaic of life that we see around us”
When his pen is not consuming empty pages, Ali can be found at the squash court in the middle of an intense provincial-league match, taking long quiet walks to contemplate the mysteries of the universe or looking up new ways to grow his communications coaching and copywriting business for entrepreneurs and online companies.
