I want to use my editing and writing skills in the publishing field one day. When I am not reading or writing, I’m either on Pinterest or hanging with family, friends, or my dog, Scout.
Ali grew up in Dallas, TX., but was born in Baghdad, Iraq. He attended Plano West Senior High School, and graduated from Devry University with a graphics and multimedia management degree.
