What scares you most about traveling? Missing a connecting flight or being delayed while on a flight.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new places and interacting with new people.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Afghanistan, because it’s my parents’ homeland and I’ve never been there.
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race with your partner (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to experience and bond with him again like we did as teens because now we live far from another.

Current occupation: Customer Financial Services Manager
Describe what you do: I handle the final step of purchasing a vehicle from AutoNation. All the paperwork aspect of the dealership as well as going over the clients’ product options. I’m the lead finance manager with over 12 years of automotive experience.
Three words to describe you: Ambitious, confident, and resilient.
Favorite hobbies: Basketball, shooting at the range, and flying drones.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being one of the top financial service managers for AutoNation. Also being the best father to my baby girl Sophia and raising her with integrity and showing her that she can accomplish anything she wants. I'm also proud of the relationship I have with my beautiful wife Tamana who also happens to be my best friend. Raising our Sophia together has been fun and we cherish every moment, all while being the best role models possible for her.
What scares you most about traveling? Flying on a Boeing 737 Max 8.
What excites you most about traveling? Being able to experience the different cultures and dissecting each language.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Anywhere that has animals. I have always loved animals, especially exotic cats. I always dreamed of being immersed with wild animals and living with them.
What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race with your partner (other than winning one million bucks)? Coming back for a third time. I really hope we can be a force to be reckoned with. That will take lots of patience and discipline. I'm also running this race for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Drive Pink Initiative (#DrivePink) from AutoNation.
Who do you think will be your biggest competition: Racers, Houseguests, or Castaways? Clearly, the biggest threats will be past Racers. Just simply because of the experience. Having been on the Race before definitely helps you prepare mentally and physically.
