Is Faraz your real name?
Where do you live?
I live in Los Angeles, California.
Did you always live in Los Angeles?
I was born in India. I left when I was 5 years old because my dad got a job in the middle east. We lived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for another 6 years. We then migrated to Toronto, Canada when I was around 12 years old. I lived there for 10-11 years until I moved to California.
What do you do for a living?
I’m a software engineer/analyst/architect (software). I work in business intelligence. I build programs that transform data into reports and other forms of insight that helps management do their job.
I think a lot. I also like writing but I don’t take the time to practice it. So I thought that it’s a shame that I don’t record any of my thoughts. They might be interesting to look back on. Maybe I’ll learn a little more about myself. It also gives me a chance to practice my writing.
