I'm a technopreneur and I love creating simple and elegant solutions that combines my love for geography, e-commerce and food.
I am currently the Head of Information Systems at WhatsHalal where we help consumers feel safe about what they put into their bodies is Halal. I am also the Founder and Owner of Haz & Co, a tech lab and consulting firm where I build stuff I am passionate about and help organisations solve their business processes and technology problems. I am the co-author of the book, Flow, and occasionally post honest reviews on Halal food. I am married to a beautiful wife and dad to 3 lovely rescue cats.
I have built 5 companies and exited 3x. As a result, I am very strong at crystalising purpose, building a strong team, and running a tight ship. I know what works and what doesn't and I am the go-to guy for solving process bottlenecks, financial siphons and technology gaps.
