Ivan bucatini had because. I just think it's cute but i definitely didn't grow up in a bucatini household by any means we are definitely spaghetti. Family the mystery part of all of this began. When rachel started to notice last spring that her beloved bucatini seemed to be getting harder and harder to find at our local grocery stores in new york until eventually it seemed to be totally gone and then one day in the fall rachel was on the phone with her also pasta obsessed mother who lives in chicago and her mom kind of mentioned off hand that she was having the exact same problem. Racial literally haven't been able to find bucatini anywhere and she was talking specifically about to check out. The check is a one hundred and forty year old italian pasta company so when she said that i was like slow mo i was like because i thought it was like a new york problem like a very classic. Sort of like you know history. I can't find my bucatini. Whatever like who cares. But then i was a coli though. Sorry can i swear. Oh yeah okay okay. Great it's like holy if you can't find it that means that this is a real issue. And then she told me that she had actually reached out to the customer service department to check. Oh i just sent them an email. it's a classic move. It was like full of typos. Which is like a way. That mom's ready meals. But her email said i am a huge fan of bucatini pasta huge in all caps. I have not been able to find it for many weeks at any store. It is my favorite pasta cook than the sentences in all caps with four questionnaires. Are you still making it. Please tell me how to get some not too long afterwards. Rachel's mom gets a voicemail from a regional dicicco sales representative named brian. And then when. She played me voicemail from brian. I was like holy like this goes deep. There is a cover up like something weird is going on. Brian told rachel mom that she was likely having trouble. finding check. Oh bucatini. Because of an fda hiccup the hecker exactly for some reason the fda which is the food and drug administration seemed to have put a hold on the import of check. Obu katini and now. Brian was telling rachel's mom to sit tight and check the shelves a few months down the road and the fact that this little pasta mystery seemed to reach all the way to the federal government. That was something that had dogged. Journalists like rachel could not in good conscience. Look away from. This is the turning point for me. Yeah the next day. Rachel pitched the story to her editor but in the back of her mind. She wasn't sure it would go anywhere. And i'll just felt so big. And i think all of us figured nothing would really come event. At least i did. I was like i'm never going to figure out what's going on but began calling to check. Oh i reached out to like five or six different people. Email and phone call and voicemail and no one got back to me and then i was like something in santa's happening and i don't know and at that point i was like there's there's a story hammond

I think it it makes the feelings of awe and wonder more accessible or getting at that when i was beauty but that like swelling of like. Oh my god this the way the my coffee cup looks on the plate with the crumbs from the cookie. Just look so beautiful.

It yet helps me. we've together. Ideas articulate things in ways the might even surprise myself which may be my more sober solve needs to edit or refine but that the raw material that comes out. I feel like is really generative Robust that's cool. We got off on these tangents earlier than i normally do so. I don't think i even got to ask you this one question which we sort of already touched on a little bit which is Just in a general sense what to you. What does it feel like to be high When it's the kind of high that i like if feels Kind of floaty light. In my body it feels a little bit. Ghazi like A weird combination of on the one hand feeling like noticing details more clearly and being more integrated in my environment at the same time. It in my head feels to be a little bit more like gauze somehow and. I think that's you know what my friend is seeing an feeling in experiencing in her reflection of Feel like there's something between us when you're high that makes it hard to like really focus so yeah so. That's funny that you brought up your friend twice now actually. Who told you what you were like while high. Because there's one question that i have asked that i don't think ever once somebody had an answer to you actually answered it before. I even asked the question. Which is has anybody ever told you what you were like when you were high Have there been any other people who have who have said that as funny. No i not. That i can think of your. That's i just think it's funny that you answered it before. I even got a chance to ask it. Because i was like. Nobody's gonna know. This has never happened to anybody. But i think it's funny that she actually called you out on that. Like your godsey not that you use those words but you mentioned focus. What how does your level of focus change when you get high. Yeah i feel like it gets more dispersed focus. I mean because another thing. I like to do high is like like to clean the house or clean. The backs might my chore here.

"ghazi" Discussed on Soundrise Podcast
"Monday you mean by that like it Kinda. Reminds you of the early grunge bands like the sounds the exactly. Yes. I never really thought about it. That way to me, this sounds like Ghazi record. It I think it has some traces of grunge. You know maybe it's maybe not the album as whole. Certain strikes. Now I want to highlight fifth and sixth track life and limb and the kill I life limb is such a good drunk. You know I just love it and the singing and chorus is so catchy. Then it's followed by the kill which has a mistake and a very dark introduction I. Love that effect I don't know what it's called and I would I could honestly listen to it forever. It's such a good introduction of the song also ex spectator, another great Shrek and the. Final track argument let's say the title track is a very good ending to record of whether you think well, I absolutely agree with you that the band went out with a bang. Well, if this is the end for now it's the end, but we don't know they might come back but this this is the end it's a spectacular and I think that Another amazing effort very consistent throughout not a single week track here I'd say, I like this one even better than read medicine even though it's hard to compare such great records especially when you listen to them back to back it all blends into one very long sequence of greatness I love the topics that they have here the themes that they cover especially for example, the first track cash-out is about gentrification in how the neighborhoods lose their soul, how people are left without their homes because of this very greedy expansion that's going on. So great track. The kill as you said, another amazing one and that's the track that really speaks a lot to me as somebody from the Balkans where unfortunately we had horrible conflicts back in the nineties and where people who used to live together in harmony turned against each other overnight despite the fact that they speak the same language and are very culturally similar..

And then poured him a generous glass of whisky. Drink it down lad. It's what we do at a Scottish like Wake Alice explained.

Greet each other with a nod of their heads Henry's attention was then drawn to the bed at the head of the room. Illuminated by the soft golden glow of candlelight. Lay Rebecca. Dressed in a Ghazi white shroud. Her arms crossed over her chest her eyes closed as if any peaceful sleep. Made a stark contrast to the last time Henry saw her. Crumpled, broken on his family's cellar floor. Alice Motion Henry over to Rebecca's corpse. Upon closer inspection, his first impression of her dissipated. Her Skin blotchy and discolored with a Pale blue cast appear dry and Steph. Her once big expressive is now sunk deep in her skull were scarcely covered by the malted paper thin skin ever eyelids. At the corner of her mouth was a dried cracking drop of blood. Unsure. What was expected of him Henry Finally commented She looks so peaceful. I allies responded. Taking notice of the dried blood. She left her thumb and rubbed the stain vigorously. That is until Rebecca's mouth popped open into a wide silence scream. Henry's friends seated in the room. All audibly startled in their chairs the frightful image. Henry looked at them and with one simple expression they knew. He was telling them to be quiet. Be Still. Without visibly acknowledging the horror of the site before them Alice gently pushed Rebecca Shaw closed and tied at length of cloth a cloth that had been draped on Rebecca's shoulder up around her jaw to the top of her head keeping her mouth forcibly shut once and for all. Sensing that she was waiting for him to do something Henry could only to say, I'll keep good watch over her tonight. I have no doubt. Then Alice looked at Henry and said you must touch her you know. Pardon Henry asked. It's customary is tradition from the old country. Keeps nightmares, illness away they say. PA- mainly, it's a sign of respect. Erin who visits the dead must touch them. She shrugged. Oh. All right. Where shall I touch her? The choice is yours lad. Though in general, most just touch the forehead or shoulder. Wherever, you feel most comfortable. Reaching out Henry's hand begin to tremble slightly as he moved slowly in his uncertainty. As the last moment, he found himself drawn to touch the tight shiny skin of her cheek, but he immediately regretted it and upon feeling her cold rigid flesh, he quickly pulled away.

It wasn't actually about the barbies itself. It was about all of the handmade furniture that went with the barbies so growing up. We were working class. I love barbies but my parents couldn't afford the cool Barbie accessories so my mom would like get Styrofoam or like leftover cardboard and she would shape them into like couches and it's it sounds really makeshift describing them. But they were really beautiful and then she would go to the fabric store and like buy fabric and make Barbie furniture. You know the barbies represented the lengths that my mother would go to to lake. Provide me with a beautiful childhood. Even though we didn't have a whole lot of money so I logged these homemade toys from apartment to apartment until I moved with my ex and then we store them in his garage even when I had like nothing to give and return to him right that it wasn't like a exchange like he was just like he cared about me as a human being he saw he was like okay. She once was a child who really cared for these things and even though I'm not with her I am going to be a good steward of this thing that I know to. Her core is really meaningful to her.

Have you spent a lot of time in this room. Then no no. They don't like it when you stay too long. Time hasn't have never even dark. Are you donating today already. Did funeral is a recent college graduate donates a few times a week for up to seventy five dollars a deposit each each time. His donation goes from a little cup in the donor cabin to a lab in the back where it gets tested and divvied up into straws it's like sperm assembly-line lab technicians Sion's than freeze the stras and liquid nitrogen and it's off to storage. It looks totally frozen. And it's making all these things until eventually. Somebody picks corrupts profile from crisis online catalogue which includes things like is hobbies academic interests.

They have enough donations in storage for tens of thousands of potential babies waiting to be packed in coolers and shipped around the world but sperm in banking hasn't always been such a high tech far-ranging Enterprise Rene almo- ling is a sociologist. At Yale who has written extensively on the fertility industry for most of the twentieth century sperm donation was a fresh donation meaning. Basically from the donor in one room at a doctor's clinic to the patient in another almo- links has the first first generation of frozen sperm banks started in the early seventies when they were marketed as a kind of insurance for men undergoing a sect amies or cancer treatment. Who might want to have children later later on but it remained a niche industry? There really wasn't a great market for their services until HIV after several women contracted HIV from fresh sperm. Donations pins in the eighties fertility. Doctors recommended against its use from then on anyone seeking donor sperm on the medical market would need frozen sperm. which was quarantined and retested? Later on to make sure it was `virus-free they had to turn to these Burbank's who had all the infrastructure for freezing sperm and testing donors shipping shipping the sperm out and his laws and social norms around same sex parenting and single motherhood have shifted so too has spurned. Banking's customer base craft says that seventy five percent its customers are now single women and same sex couples almost says the. US sperm industry has grown dramatically in part because it remains vastly underregulated which which has raised a host of ethical concerns. Sometimes sperm donors will have fifty offspring or a hundred and fifty and in part that's because these sperm firm banks are businesses and they are collecting sperm from people they spend a lot of money screening at the same time. Mulling points out. Countless families might not have otherwise gotten and started if it weren't for these sperm banks and the broader market for sex cells. That sells with a C..

"Me. That's how I lent it. The best way was modeled for me as I was going through different pieces and I mean I started off my professional career in financial services and then after eight years and financial services transitioned over into the world of advertising and I was very fortunate especially in the world of advertising for my first boss The tree soon as I saw it within six months of being at W. P. my oldest really sick nick and my my first boss was like take all the time off that you need. Don't even question it. Come and go as you want. So I was very fortunate to see it modeled Ed from day. It was almost like by seen it model. It was almost like saying it's allowed because up until that point in time Like I also come from like a very like an Asian culture. It's very very tech. Drew a very logical driven. Almost everyone I know that think to be was an engineer at Like the four word. No one in my family ever says love so you so I come from that type of background as well and even though empathetic in the workplace I was always taught in university. They'll give you a close on Youtube. This giving management finance all the rest of it so it wasn't until I saw it being modeled and being a recipient of it and what it did for me in terms of made me more loyal will like I literally was doing partnerships out of hospital waiting rooms now because I felt the pressure to do it because but because I wanted to and loyalty to my boss and to the firm as a the result of it so I've realized more empathetic. You are and really understand what people are going through. People were the pretend that to you. Dividends diffidence because loyalty. Such a key thing when you get people I have to believe. And I've seen it that people were tended to by being good to you by working halted by wanting to do what's best for the firm and so forth also want to emphasize that we're talking about it. It's not so much where gamification trying to nyc manipulate someone to do something to me. Actually yes the outcome is greater in. That's the juice we are in a human human oriented organization and the interconnectivity. The how you share how you provide space for people that you serve with. That's the juice right because otherwise I would easily be. You know programming something tools. And that's that it's not interesting interesting to me right. Yeah absolutely. Yes shouldn't be so the minute you have the attention that it's going to give you an outcome of a pestle be more loyal. It needs to be more authentic than its basic principle of treat others the way you want to be treated And that's it. You know just trying to be a good person be a good human being and even so for my career at the firm has been around developing collaborations and partnerships. And I've prided myself on being a fit fair business partner just from the human perspective. You could hear all the lawyers not where I'm like. Hey also disavowed partner. We need to give it back to them as well. It has to be fair And there are times you know. I'll be honest I've been burnt. Where fairness isn't reciprocated from a partner? You know you can't win all of them and I'm okay with that. I need to know that I can go to sleep at night knowing that. I've been a fair practitioner because ought to be known as a fair practitioner of partnerships and collaborations then being known known as someone who is unfair. Yeah totally and ultimately I love the way you articulated because you did it for you right so you can go to sleep sleep at night. There is a cost of trying to maximize profit or trying to get the most out of someone gets what to me. Life is a long game right and you have a reputation. If you're repetition is yeah working with C K is an example you know I feel shitty. Yeah Shit no one wants to win. Maybe this time you get some you know some short term gains by long-term wise almost be around you right so thank you so much better assurance generously so talk a little bit about. How do you actually imploring that? Because you're uh-huh speaking from it individual person's point of view you have given you have received. How do you actually still that? Because I would say that. That's pretty tricky. So it's interesting as I came to council transitioning WPP within A few weeks we had a product launch. I had to lead and this product to the team had been working on it for months it was such a large opportunity not and they were so big that no-one tackle it and so came in and literally. We had six six weeks to launch this product and the product name bows attribution And we had to launch at can and there were so many stakeholders involved with partner we had of a forty people internally and love it was just listening to what everyone had to say. Hi and in listen to what they had to say then also understanding what what is the communication saw so like why this one member on the team Super Smart Guy and and his emails on a different level because they were the luminous offer academic and I there was so long I was just like no one's GonNa be able to read all these e mail so I realized very quickly that the way you scale something like that as you call them so so then I realized that that communication jollity was you. This is a person who needs to. We spoke to on the phone to get the message and distill it. Here's a person who needs to WHO's cool speaking in public environments varmints. It's understanding your team. And just it's that emotional. The e q alternate of knowing how and when people want to be spoken to the so. I think it's just understanding feeling out where your team is and understanding how they want to engage what's the most effective way to join outcome for business us but a lot of industry is just listening so that you can figure out. I think a lot of folks that jump headfirst and do this do that. We are economy. A of dictatorship is over. We are in a collaboration economy and the only way a collaboration can happen is if people felt like they are hers and that you are taking them seriously and you are really making them feel valued and that their contribution plays a role in the final outcome. We're trying to bring forward. How do you teach to your managers or someone who is not you? Who who has daily prayer faith. Strong family background in. Because I mean actually share. Share this with you Companies that I previously where at we tend to want to find people who are like US similar values and practices the depth of was them Deeper winners Eq. All of that right. If you look for someone who's exactly like you gonna find it because there's only one in us there's one okay. Well how do you scale that level of depth and awareness. So this is where. Here's a funny truth right so so this is where being a minority has been helpful. Because there's when I start my career as a grownup resorting to look like me in the professional force and ed I never had a manager who was my background either anything to that nature so I used to dealing with people who want like me right so that almost has now become a. It's an asset because I look for is a skill set and also look for chemistry. Do we as people got along with people from very backgrounds at differences. Because like I said I've I've always been different and to now we're lucky we are in a place in time with being different is considered good. But it's just bringing people who are right for the job but people that you have chemistry with who you understand they understand you and I think that's really important to like and trust the people that you work with regards to what backgrounds who've come come from like I said like I've led global teams. Where even though there are commonalities is also differences and I think we as people will like then diagrams this pieces of a star like in those pieces? This is a different. It's just how'd you bring that right permutation together to get the best business outcome. Because I don't want people the same and I think that's why especially in advertising. That's where we run into big issues with campaigns and so forth where we have all the same people.

It's all perfect I I really appreciate being here. Thank you and no they reach out to me and say hey. Ah Ah story I wanted to share right and I'm so glad that we met right as right away. There's a resonance absolutely just your name your presence. We're being so tell us a little bit about why. Why your desire to help people overcome harsh? Everyone has an origin story. And I'm here. Here's my biggest superpower highest intention comes from in my desire desire to empower people to alleviate suffering to inspire them to really step into purpose mostly came from my my own journey. When I first started I was following the the status quo? Life should go this way in a very rigid. Wait in an throughout the journey of Following the path of science and engineering hiring to entrepreneurship to now where I'm at right now sharing wisdom. It's wanted say while he's been all over the place but I would say no. The core through line of my life has been the pursuit of wisdom. I just didn't have the words for that. So share with us. A little bit of awarding story of Whitest desire to share to alleviate struggle adversity hardship. So there's a couple pieces to that right so I think I have to take it back to my childhood house race and so forth so it was born raised in the UK and my mother is of Indian. Burmese to set my father's of box. Donnie and Turkish descent and raised in the UK. My my parents both let them come from US phenomenal families of extreme fortitude grandfather. What he's called? What School Degi Guitar Landowner? And that's generational racial to being one of the first mattress giants of India to my father and his family being boxed on during the time of the partition. His his his family's journey to my father leaving England box on for England. Eighteen to go to school so we came from this. I come from this lineage of people who are entrepreneurs believes and strives who have done extremely well parents got married moved to the UK and we went from being this family of having halves. CBS having a country house in Norwich England. And all the rest of it to my father passing away when I was three and my mother a widower twenty eight with five children youngest being three I children oldest being nine yeah so foreign woman in a ultimately a new land that she was a native of and so we went from having all these things to to my mother's sewing teddy bears for us and our coats. And you know. We had a renter in our house. Because we we needed money to and my making some Moses for a theme park called Chessington Zoo so we we've we've seen my family and I we've seen the bifurcation of life have have nots and one of my biggest things. I've always been a dreamer. Big Time driven. I could get lost in my even as a as a child so I think having those aspirations expirations of this is what I want my life to be like and one of the core values. My mother isn't still door. VOSS is you're not defined by you are at the moment because monster moments change you will define but you are decide where you come from. So we're very proud family lineage. And you know this idea of bloodline it's also the characteristics that you invite in by US bloodline so my mother like who I remember the first time we went to a home in India. It's practically palatial to seeing that fallacious relations like a palace to seeing how life was an England where you lived in a very modest home and so forth. Mom You came from this. You're living like this and she's at that shouldn't doesn't matter what does mattress who are person character and your work ethic and not to be defined by the failure that you have in life but to come above them so back to your the question of. What's the story to share? It's that it's people have ups and downs all the time and I'm reference my Momma la La. I'm just going to be on this. The people have ups and downs all the time. But my mom has taught me and my four sisters is that everyone force what defines you is. How quickly and how gracefully getup and that's the the story? Because I think a lot of times people see instagram version of Liberia invasion of life. We share on twitter. That's true just the tip of the iceberg of who you are. We all rotated by that submerged iceberg of paying hardship overcoming resilience. And I think more people need to see that because it takes many. I'd like to see many nights to be an overnight success and I think it's to shed light on. Hey what success means different people but what that journey has been bottom of iceberg. uh-huh so beautiful. Mom was quite a master teacher for you. Oh absolutely absolutely still is to this place of safety for all my siblings and yeah well until this day we all speak to my mom every day not every day. We are very very very much on the way here. We're a very very close knit family. And I think fortunate but that also happens and I've read a little of psychology is when a parent pulses away. Siblings families tend to become even closer. So we've always been like this Armata and as my mom would say we're like five fingers on one hand when you wouldn't together your strongest so we've just genetically we who we are as well but not everyone so blessed to have such mother right right. So what a blessing you had mentioned uh resilience mentioned grace so put myself in a position of my listeners. Yeah because it's easy not easy simple to say. Yeah just pick yourself back up with grace. But in that moment when you're being punched life or adversity or challenges it's quite challenging to actually embody that operational operational is that right right so tell us a little bit about. How do you move from challenged grace in that moment and I literally actually just had this happen to me this week? It was something I really worked by deserved. I was very passionate about and full of good step back from it and it was hard. I mean it was stress headache and all the rest of at the moment. I'm like what the heck is happening. Because they're all moments when you get get punched in the face that you lose faith in humanity right and you're like how can this be how people have morals anymore. People don't stick by the words. I'm a good person. Nope but also the environment around when people do the do the ugly. What the heck is going on So when you're in that moment I think the pizzas has worked for me is a now just taking time and realizing that when things don't work out it's in that moment.

"Enough. American express was my climb and so my client and they asked me to come over to new york from chicago to me at that point felt like a big thing to leave chicago haugen go to like the number one financial in the world was let's do this right and as boy who's born in wembley london in the city was in chicago lived in the suburbs and they went out to school in dekalb illinois so like practically by the border island right so i was craving t- environment so went went to michigan express and i was part of the data analytics capabilities group and for about four weeks my role was to pretty much oversee the relationships with the credit bureau's but also to understand what does data from a variety of sources should be coming into american express's decision for the consumer called services group and risk information management group so that they can make better decisions for the consumer and so actually that was about four weeks and then as a stroke of luck would have it my v._p. At the time she came came up to me and she said you have a facebook account right. I'll say she sake as she was looking at me. Always guiding my question say so you want you get digital right so she's notting ahead for our good. Even i ah i could respond. Also yeah sure facebook where she's at great. She's you can lead the digital transformation for the division and i was like okay and in my head you know i don't know if there's even a brave nece or a little bit of both in my house i couldn't be that difficult so i put together the digital transformation for <hes> risk information management and consumer cards gutman tim's of who should partner with why we should partner with them and ultimately it was solving the problem that american express had at the time and and that was more so how do we increase our called member base so they were looking at reaching out to folks who had nontraditional at that point in time so they wanted to younger consumers of people have divest backgrounds and so forth and it's which platforms can we connect without gal help us reach those audiences right so put together this whole digital roadmap and what's my favorite is because i saw it there. What thing is like september october so i didn't really have any vacation so i worked all through that december it came around january presented it what well and went on to get leadership in action award and so forth and my role to hats now it was lead this digital digital transformation for g in addition to bringing in data deals through some of our net- bureaus and so forth and i mean at american express i really dade at the time it was the c._e._o. And he's a marvel of man in that all the way from him being the this c._e._o. To american express being several thousand people everyone felt a connection to him and why really that from that experience was how he was able to quickly distill information. I think till today what has helped american express ticket is their agility information travels so quickly the very concise i every i mean the town. Oh pulled a every president is burgeoning c. suite of every person that's interesting. That's a a and i haven't interviewed anyone from american express so appreciate the insider insider view to that's pretty interesting and you go from credit bureau who has all the data on everyone to amex who knows at the transaction in level what their members are doing <hes> and and then you you flip the switch if you will to the platform side and digital transformation mation i guess data's the common thread ray. It has a completely right and that's why i tell folks. Data is now like a thing. I came into the industry when data was even a career and it's very like the career a lot people have asked me. It's just a career. You thought you were going to have right and austin college. This didn't even exist and even now now the work that we're doing at cantor and so forth of our products infusing a._i. And so forth the these pieces and exists until a euro backer in some cases a few months back and i i think where american express is doing it right and they've always been doing it right is they've always had the foundation of days help their their experience company so they build stories on that day. Take they build experiences on that data because data is only as good as the data. It's the story that you tell and they've done so many good things all the way from these partnership with fashion fashion week to do things with the u._s. Open i mean it to you. Airport lounges they get their called members and that's why they're called and called members and not card holders because they have members of a larger group who they want to treat with respect and give him experiences that will help give them a better life right. You're so true so true are they. You said it much more eloquently than i can but the fact that they were using the data for the benefit and utility of their members <hes> was was fantastic and everyone's trying to emulate that in some ways now they are investing. I think a lot of this is about speed to market right so i think these brands who have done it i they've they've just made a cachet behind it is this is who we all this is what we stand for all the way to the partnership with the new york taxis where you could use your credit leslie berlin and twitter sink that was like a big that was actually the first big social media relationship that went in place to that was like two thousand team two thousand fourteen they have been innovators and they've done it quickly but they've done it in a way where is improving the life and the experience of their called member base and so your amex then you end up at w. p. Oh gosh yeah so how tells about that transition and leading the data alliance eventual sure so interesting enough. If you're gonna realize the theme of my life i guess fired a lot by television and i literally was watching an episode of madmen and it was the episode assode where'd don draper was a pitching the idea of the carousel for kodak and as the pictures flipping up and they're coming up on screen and i watched that episode now i could do that this. I called my sister safina funeral. I think wanna get to advertising my sisters. You are nutcase but this this is what we've learned to expect with you. Let me see who i know who could try and connect you up. So as khalil gibran would say what you seek is seeking you so my sister connected me with someone. One who i met lesson that was never turn down a meeting so i met this gentleman jim tobacco and met with impove now our and nothing happened the six months later. He reached out to me and i'm with a phone call w._p. And they've got this group called data alliance would could you be open to to coming in so i was like sure why not and he's he sends me this literally six page job description which was is everything and the bathroom sink and a lot in ice or job descriptions. I would say you know sixty percents of else. I could do twenty percent of it. I could figure out twenty percent l. Just fudge vic figure out over the drought but when i saw the job description as i've done all of this so i could do this so a short minogue back and with immunities c._e._o. Wants to meet you all right and went in and i met the c._e._o. Who at the time was nick. Knight the hat who's currently the chief digital off canton and also the chairman of our profiles division so i met him. He spoke about division but what was the hook for me to come to w._p._p. As much as i understood with the group was trying to do it was i felt a connection to nick as a person and it and that is a ruled. I've actually let i have to pick people over job. Titles and descriptions i just felt very connected to nick and his vision and the type of person that he was when i grow on nick that was what was supposed to be a half hour. Forty five minute meeting ends up being like two and a half thousand. I walked him to the train and and i was just at this is it i'll say this is the place i want to be so came to date alliance and what data alliance that the remember days alliance who was very much to bring together data partnerships so that we could bring those those day to assets into w._p._p.'s decision systems so what we what we refer to as house we'll have coined data destinations so how'd you bring data into the d. n. p. over at one time and how do we bring data into <hes> pre and platform than into platform how'd taste into their how to bring day and enter the panels council so that we could understand the three hundred and sixty degree view of an audience so that we could reach them with the the right message at the right time so the first partnership that we place low behold was twitter up and then from there we data surfed and offer that it was facebook book initially the team was based in new york and as the pawnshops began growing the benefit was really apparent. There was a desire for us to branch launch because we had also become at that point in time. A center of excellence of how do you do data partially created oldies frameworks of this how you do and this is. What how are we gonna evaluate partnerships so we were able to do at scale so then after that help support the the landing of or the expansion of data lines indicate in south africa in between johannesburg and cape kicked out right so like it's working and what was beneficial at that time like nick his leadership like has just been brilliant he was like if you've got an idea just make it happen and so came up with this entire structure of how we should do more expansion because we've been getting folks from u._p. India indonesia china all over the world saying we want d._a. We expanded to these regions because we want to. We want to not only leverage data decision systems. We also want to tell stories and we also wanna have relationships across all these sport. Also i mean end to end d._a. We did over twenty two partnerships with spotify horrify facebook twitter. I mean you name it all the big ones and as pure out that supports each one of those so we began so i started off as a director and dan began doing these partnerships and then began doing expansion and then move my web from director to global director managing director than to c._e._o. In about three and a half she is fast but you know i think it was false because it doesn't feel like work right. It was just something so intuitive and so natural to what i wanted to do. I was always the environment that i was in. It was a false failure ebb and they were failures. I mean oh god i mean and and we were supposed to do a music po ship had this big session i can and all this kind of great stuff and <hes> as we're about to go live with it. Just don't work at it died. I gave the analogy of you know you've operated someone stitching them back up and then they just flat on the table and also also my gosh maltin soils involved with this bags and at the time the chief strategy off says scott spirit because i get over it and that was the best advice i've ever received also what he was just go over. It is working on this stuff figure out and through the failure of that was the genesis of our relationship with spotify which like i'm just so proud of the firm as i see them grow and i see them do well like i feel in a small way. I've been able able to contribute to that because the way that relationship even developed was one night in a mobile congress in barcelona myself pete good guide well we can collaborate and a lot of these collisions have come together because of passion right like we. We've got passion for the music. We've got passion for the industry. What can we do that was going to be cool and collective and we ended up being like launch partners in indonesia and asia and have done a variety of work since then interesting so yeah. That's how old game together good all right so you you you're c._e._o. Data alliance and then now you're kantar. Yes what happened so with data alliance. The remits of days alliance grew as well so outside of a data partnerships. We also became a consultancy with clients the supporting our agencies going out there winning pitches. We were we this entire curriculum about data storytelling so eventually this idea of data. It's become commoditised and that's the reality and we're at a point somewhere like we've got like we've got team in indonesia. We've got firm in india south africa u._k. Senor and we were at the mission was that we would up school everyone and be able to have the center of excellence where everyone canal do it and we scaled it so then the next opportunity that came my way. It was like for me professionally as well. I wanted to be closer to the business because through d._a. Had luxury of influencing over two hundred million dollars worth the dayton technology spend and where we can leverage that how we can leverage that by one or two almost go back to my roots being closer to the client right front of house smart house but also.

"Today on marketing today i've got a nas ghazi growth officer at kantar a nas and i talk about his pathway kantar which started at the trans union and his background in actually programming led to data data analysis. They're then going to amex followed by joining w._p._p. In their data science initiative and ultimately becoming c._e._o. Of that initiative before his current role as driving growth and partnerships at kantar. I hope you enjoy this wide ranging conversation with a nas qazi nas welcome to the show. Thank you for happen. We excited. We're here durham's. Thank you for coming no worries. We're in this nice little incubator space with these crazy companies running around but i we're gonna talk a lot about data today with kantar and and the data alliance from w._p._n. Your past listen and even as a data engineer or data plus but before we go there when we last talked you talked about wanting to pursue a a career in acting oh so one. I got that right. I believe she did get that right. Did you get that right. Tell us about that. Ed's my little tip of having apple juice to help was a crisp voice. Yes the things that you load your together from canada. So tell you about wanting to be an actor. I honestly i have to take it back to growing up in london specifically wembley and i watched lots of stallone movies. I'm about to date myself here. I remember watching over the top. It was that that and rocky five and i remember watching those films and even at that age just being really taken by the character and the connection seven and i remember being with wembley high road probably marks and spencer remember this clearly and i told my best friend homes are also i'm. I'm going to be an actor and i'm going to move to american could become rich and famous at his response. At true british fashion was known eveline leaves wembley and that was a year later. We did end up moving to the the u._s. We actually moved to chicago and subsequently i was picked up by a talent agent and it wasn't because i was different looking or handsome tall anything to that nature it was just that i was what they deemed ethnically ambiguous and that man i could play any role i could play them. Do you know i could play iranian. I play indian box thorny mexican sardinian you name it. I've played it right because at that time in the early nineties specifically chicago the era was different. It was either you a black. We will white and those very few folks in between so yes so so that's how my acting aspiration began and told me a lot and you just i remember going to meet my fest agent with my mom at that was a surreal experience and i would walk in and as there's no shorter than i am now and the name was choline. She was five eleven coughed platinum blonde hair in a bun and as we sat down she was awesome questions. I do think you're gonna grow tall. Your face looks fine. Your ears are adjusted out so you're going to have to get them pinned back and as i walked out i was at mom. I'm gonna have to get new ears. Let's do do it at my mom's response. Was you need to get new agents so it was a really interesting time and it actually i love doing it. I loved it for the experience. I wasn't wasn't a very good actor. All this. I think at that point in time was doing it for all the wrong reasons rather than for the enlightenment which acting does provide is more for like the fame and the fortitude that would bring but there's also a big piece that acting allowed. We allowed experience which before that's awesome. That's awesome not everybody i don't i know that i've had any former actors on so you're the first it just did it for almost a decade and a half wow did it through to high school. Undergrad grad school even took a year off in between and continued doing it and then it sort of ran its own course but did it for a while. That's cool. That's cool well. Let's let's talk about your business background. You start oh goodness and actually tails into the acting thing because after grad school the first time round i took a year off and i decided that i was going to act and the big thing i needed was health insurance right so couldn't be able to my my parents anymore onto my mom in particular and so i was like all right. How do i get health insurance so i found a job that was closest to my agent in chicago and closest to david o'connor honor costing and that happened to trans union and i remember the day i wh- for the interview and came back and it was wearing a suit and tie and my mom's like you just don't look well because i walked upstairs with my coat on and i just through my bank of my head and my mom's like oh no. You didn't get it also where i did. She's it while you're upset. Also the ending of my dreams because now we're going to be like this corporate stooge and actor bells i. I'm just doing this part time really going to be an actor so initially when i first began gun working at transient during my launches in between i was going and i was doing well dishes and i would liken it because i got hired as a data engineer and interesting story when h._r. Recruited me the first question. Is there any coding involved and the h._r. Associate was like no not at all day one of the job it was cobo stray batch processing kabul gassing soil and this is code going on mm-hmm so that's actually how i got my four into trans union and a big piece around being data engineers i had to code campaigns and models for all the banks that were doing business snus with a transient right and so so the banks the credit card agencies at the credit card issuers visa moscow american express discover <hes> bank of america so it came down to charlotte quite a bit i was up in delaware because p._n._c. was the blades and my role there was to code campaigns anes where they could either do what we'd call prescreens where they would run acquisition campaigns based off of the credit reporting online network utility system krona's. We're we pull data off of the <hes> at based on specific criteria that was invited and develop an acquisition strategies for them or it was coaching what we call portfolio reviews which is where a client would give us their their consumers and say we want to understand how they're reacting. What types of decisions should we make. Should we increase increase the credit. Spending limit should be decrease based on how the fluctuations network credit profiles so that's why i initially started took off as and and like you said i was did not realize coding even though i had a graduate degree in information systems or did c. plus plus i literally had to reteach myself coding wow because by the time i went back into a into the corporate world and grad school i had a year hiatus because acting acting the whole time i was elated pilots seasons and policies in chicago and so it was i was completely green and i remember calling my college roommate. <hes> shocker say doodles like teach me how to code that he was he would like draw. These buckets of this is how coding works right but it was a lot of weekends. I would actually put in baker's because those this competitive thing in also i cannot fail at this so every we cannot go literally i think for about eight months and i would just no one else of that not just code it would make my mistakes printout will call dumps which were sample credit report where everything is anonymous black to make sure my code was working as it should and and <hes> started off as data engineer and then very quickly progressed into being warned the client consultant side where i mean models are transients. Muscles auto's really complex trying to explain that to clients because we were dealing with marketing to people so then i was reluctant. I got to lead an entire team of client service. This and data engineers to not only can sept- what these marks in campaigns would look like but also how do we explain. It was the strategy behind it. Are we going to get the consumers that we're trying to reach out to all making the right decisions and did that. During the <hes> through i'd say the two thousand eight two thousand nine crash and and at that point in time washington mutual was actually my client and i and i mean it was intense overnight. They evaporated and i remember going out to pleasanton in california. You could scape through their offices because overnight things just disappeared while and it was a great experience in terms of i feel like in this data industry. There are very few folks have actually touched data who have understood data who can actually code and so when i think now it's all a decision trees. I didn't realize how much of an imprint sprint trans union coding domain but it really shaped the way i see things and do things and interestingly enough and i walk into a room very few people realize i come from a very tactical tactical background educational and a career perspective and have the fortitude to do that and lead these client teams servicing being over sixty different clients over. I'd say was portfolio of several million dollars tens of millions. I'd say right and helping these credit issues issue at that point in time especially post two thousand eight two thousand nine really minimize their risk also grow at the same time right right well. I mean credit bureaus. They're known from an outsider never worked inside one but couldn't is known for having all the information about all of us right and you know the famous lately i guess recently the experience hack equifax twenty dollars folks yeah so yeah equifax in all the settlements wants. They're going on around that but you you think about it. That's a great way to cut your teeth right all that much data because it's interesting because now like you hear a lot about data privacy and security at trans union like where the seven it was listed in an oxygen tight room ever a fire broke out they would suck the oxygen out the room to protect the service so transient already had the mindset i mean literally figuratively and literally around data protection actually yes <hes> to the point that while i was working there they were located in west new we import our name on the building because they want to protect the building right so that it wouldn't track like eh or and at that point in time it was a family owned business. It was owned by the pritzker and then it was one of them went to p._d. So anything before as well and at that time it was a billion dollar company company. Today's fourteen billion wow so the has always had those principles now. It's become the buzzword but they've already had an interesting. Well you move from trans union m._s. What was that transition like. What was the appetizer. The prompt maybe <hes> the prompt was strangely enough..

Remember your second question. Are you eating right now? I was I'm not anymore figured you guys gonna answer. Anyway, we've the phone twice for you. Now, I feel like the idea that we don't answer the phone is not something you're allowed to believe. Oh, I know. I don't eat more. Now. I'm a firm believer that you guys are not full shit. The phone. Fucking fall. And you're so full of shit. Back again. Do you? Remember your second question. Oh my gosh. Oh, all right. What is different between a proxy server, a whole and VPN and what what is your better choice between the free. Okay. Allison answer. This question doing from. What are you trying to figure out how to browse your net anonymously? Yeah. I yeah. Because like, you know, you go on the dark web and shit, and I have a VPN and all that. But like with this you need to bridge. But like, okay. So what if I have a VPN what's the point of having a proxy or bridge? You know what I'm saying? Like, I I don't understand like why you need all that shit. So I don't totally know the answer to your question. Okay. When I know is VP N is essentially like, basically, it's a virtual private network that that's what stands for it. What it means is like you are now part of a network that is elsewhere on the internet. So it's not technically a server it's more like you are. Connected to a different network and in your your traffic, all when it hits the internet. All looks like it's coming from this network which have somewhere else. I don't know. Exactly what a proxy is. So I don't know the difference between that and the minor saying is it's it's a server that you're that is between you and the place you're connecting like, you're sending your traffic. I try to you you send it to see so. Okay. So I guess that's the difference. Proxy servers like an actual, computer. You're hitting whereas of APN is a network that you're connecting to. What are you doing on the dark web? You know, just off and stuff. Hello. Hey, are you there? Hello. Is there way at can you chat with him? I mean numbers are coming in so fast. I don't know how we would do it. Can't you see which ones like connected with like, no. Because we connect over that phone. Country for jerky is ninety. Well, hey, we're still here. Don't hang up back. What's your what's your question? Okay. So I like ever since like ninth grade or something I've been like working real hard on my English. I don't know if that's parents. Your English is your English is amazing. Oh, thank you so much and ever since like twenty six I've been really working hard and trying to like get into college abroad. And so towards the end of last year December last year, I take the tea and I get a fifteen forty grand. That's really good and like in two thousand sixteen Trump comes into office at obviously, there's a travel ban. And I'm the longer allowed into the USO Cup. I really attack. Oh, that's okay. Just take your time. We're here. And so like the only option I had then was Canadian universities. And I try to register to the best of my ability on the internet. And I just like there was the west sites all of them were so bad and like just like hard to actually use like so many problems like, for example. My name is all cats and English. But because that's how we do it in Syria. I don't know who decided that. And so like on a lot of the like websites, I put my name, and they were all like, oh, your name is case sensitive. So you need to capitalize it as it is in your life passport and. I go in there and put it in all caps because that's the way it isn't my passport. And they're like we can't accept that. And so I literally hit him up. I. I call them. I call the university. And they're like, we don't know that they're just like, we don't know flat out that that's like McGill. Oh, yeah. I went to McGill there. I had very bad experiences. When I needed help with them. You went to got. Okay. Yeah. So like, I kind of missed all of my deadlines now. And it's like these three months have been super depressing roomy. I like, I just don't know. What to do? I've been like searching for counselors on the internet. I put Hurley pointed anyone and like, I don't know if that's even something that like you said anything so. Yeah. I don't know what I'm doing. Let's try to help. So it sounds like you need somebody. You literally need somebody who can help to navigate the college admissions process. I mean, it's not like we know first hand, but we can will help. Yeah. Well, that that's I get so much. I'm really sorry that you're going through this. How long have you been in Turkey? I've been since like twenty thirteen and are you with your family? Yeah. Can't gather. What's your family like like what mom dad siblings? I have three siblings. All females. That's how I grew up younger or older. I'm the youngest kid and what like what's your life like in Turkey right now. Like where are you talking to us from on from Essen like I've been in mesh on this whole time ten and I can't like go to Ghazi and tap. I can't go to temple unless I have a permit. And what does it take it? That. You have to have either family somewhere off, and they don't always accept that. Or you have to have something like a test or something like when I took my say t's I had to fly out on car. And so what do you do your done with school? What are you doing with yourself? I like, I skipped I went to school year earlier like like, I get your and so yeah, I'm done with school now. But like, I'm most old as a senior your student, and are you working? Not really Alex said that like he was your dad, and it's okay. You know, I'm not trying to. Yes, it's fine. Not working. I was just curious to know like the thing is as Syrians were not allowed to our care, regardless. If you have like a college degree or anything, I think we simply instated some sort of process for people to you know, convert their diplomas college diplomas and try to work here. But for now, it's mostly like educational field, and like markets and stuff that get the jobs that can work. But otherwise, no can do anything. How do people just like survive financially? We've just been like borrowing money from my grandpa from my own call for the past like three years four years. And that's what we've been subsisting off for the whole time that sound. Really, really, really hard. Yeah. Tim has a question for you. Go ahead. Hey, how's it going south? Okay. This is a kind of uninformed question. But I'm just really curious. So I live in Berlin, Germany, there's a huge Syrian population there. And I've met a lot of Syrians. And I'm just curious is that I don't know. I'm I'm genuinely cares. I don't know. Is that a thing that you guys think about is Germany so possible to emigrate to or has is that become really difficult. We wanted to go at some point back in like twenty fifteen my dad and sister wanted to go to Sweden or something like one of those countries. And basically what you do that is be get on a boat, and you go all the way there. But right, all it's very dangerous and a lot of the smugglers are, basically criminals. Do you might get still income? I get you're definitely gonna stuff stolen on the way there. You might never get there. You might think whatever. But like my dad and sister, we're going to go the way it works. Is that like once a family member goes there like your parents like your dad, he can reunite and with all of? With all of his children as long as they're under the age of eighteen and so my sister was above eighteen and if you had to go. I feel like it was really scary. You know, the days weighed in to it. And eventually. The day came they were going. I went to school, and I turned and turns out they hadn't gone and. Like right about that time. There was a law that was put in place that would prohibit Syrians from traveling between states between Turkis states or cities without a permit. And so my dad was on his way to like wherever the city was where they were going to get smuggled, and they didn't let him get get through. And so here turn and that was that. Did it did it make you feel? Did they make you feel disappointed or sad that he wasn't able to make it or were you just glad that he was not in harm's way. Obviously, I was come freighted. But. A lot of my friend had gone meant that we're going to reunite with them. And it's really not good here in Turkey, and no jobs. Yeah. I obviously, I I don't enjoy my stay here. And so I would have been happy had he like gotten there safely and reunited with us. They're put this e you know. Yeah. Totally. You don't like anyone hawks pay. picks. So Alex day has been asking people on dude. It's really important to know that reason to me to know he said he wants to with pretty much everybody. Whether they think they're PJ or an Alex foundational thing. Alex. Recklessly? Thank you sow. We're the same height. How tall PJ? Hey eleven. Yeah. You're on six feet. I can't I'll walk around on my knee. All right. We're gonna try VR. We can help you. Okay. Thank you so much. Yeah. I love you so much. I I'm both in Alexander PJ. No on your an ally year. Okay. Everyone has all right. Take care love you. Bye. So we have our conversation last Thursday since then we found too many the McGill admissions department who's looking over sows transcripts and helping him navigate their system. Macgill's student run Syrian student association is also helping out if you are one of our listeners any working college admissions in North America, and you want to help out just in this an Email reply allocate media dot com. Obviously, the problem sows having is way way broader than just him. There's tons of smart Syrian kids who have been displaced who want to go to college, and it's very hard for them to get there. If you're interested in this. We found to organizations that seem to be working on it. There's one called juicer J U S O R. It's a group of Syrian ex-pats trying to help kids. Find opportunities. The other one is the institute of international education. I e they've program called peer where they tried to find scholarships and opportunities in connect them with refugee students said he keep us updated. So if there's more news with him, we'll let you know. And finally, just thank you to everybody who called or who wrote in it was fun to ineptly trying to solve your problems. Thanks.

Hey lizzy. What's happening? Hey, Jessica, I am ready for the first web class of twenty nine thousand nine is going at pick. It's going to be awesome. I am so excited about this web Ghazi guys we were working on it just recently. Right. Just getting everything you guys. And honestly, it's been so fun to design this web class. Like, this is such a creative learning opportunity. I mean, this is a huge goal, right? Yeah. How can you express your personality? How can you be you in English? This is cameras so Lindsey, and I have been working really hard to break this down into real actions. You guys could take to do this. Oh, absolutely. Because over the year, you know, you, and I we've both been teaching for more than ten years right for a long time and working with so many students I worked with a lot of students one on one before we started this podcast and back in. Twenty ten and two thousand seven ages ago. Right and students would always tell me, I can't be myself in English. Like, I feel like maybe a pillar version of myself in this language because I don't have the vocabulary. I don't have the attitude. I can't be myself. And that's a pain point. That's a major problem for a lot of our students. A listen our listeners, all it's huge. And you know, I think this is essentially why it is sort of easier for like little kids to learn another language than it is for adults to learn another language because we're an adult. You are you're as you've you know, who you are at this point. You've tried out some other ways of being and you've sort of settled on yourself. You know, who you are? But and you can do that in your first language, you could beat you in your first language, and then when you're trying to speak another language, it's like you revert back to you know, infancy or whatever. And you're like I can't say what I want to say. I can't do what I want to do. And it's really frustrating. And so part of that, of course is vocab. So we're going to help you guys think you're out. Where's the best place for you to get this real vocabulary? Right. Like how where do you go to learn how to express yourself in English? But another part of it is sort of like, this bigger piece first of all like figure out who what what is the best thing about you at how can you do this in English as well as I love it. And once we have this information once we know how to do this the sky's the limit, right? Because at that point, we're empowered with these skills, and we start to envision we start to see that person. Again, that we know we are in our native language, and we can see the path to getting to the point where we can express ourselves. He like ourselves, right? It's a horrible feeling not feeling like yourself right tangible. I mean, everybody has those days, I think that just happens. Sometimes this is the biggest pain point, right? Like, what is holding you back in English? And that always just like, I think that idea is what governs everything we do. Right. We don't want anything to hold you back in English. And that's what I'm so excited about this like this particular web class, I think more than any other. I'm just gonna go out on a limb that I am more excited about this one. This is just what's so fun to think about so like a big part of this right is finding your role models. Right. Like, that's the heart of it. Like, how who are you going to follow an English that goes back to what Lindsey said a minute ago about knowing what your goals are having these clear goals in front of you. So having this idea of who you want to sound like, right? Like, how can you beat us in English you need that example, that model so you have a clear destination? Exactly. So when it caused so maybe we can just. Briefly give our listeners a little sneak peek of how exactly we're going to do that how they're gonna do that on this web class
