Originally from Baghdad, Iraq, He served in the (ISOF) Iraqi Special Operations Forces before moving to the U.S. almost a decade ago. I came directly to Austin in 2013 because my sponsor, Matthew Fausett, was born and raised in Austin, TX, which is why I chose Austin. My first job was as a dishwasher. On May 15, 2017, my oldest brother and best friend encouraged me to open a food truck because food has always been my passion, and here we are.
