Hailing from the great state of Michigan – yes he uses his open palm to show you where exactly he’s from, and yes he calls it “pop” instead of soda – Samir co-founded OZY with Carlos Watson and is in charge of, in equal measure, Operations and Strategy. Making his home now in the sunny Bay Area with his lovely wife Ramya, after stints in Boston (getting educated) and NYC (bright lights, late nights!…All at work), Samir is a man for all seasons.
Which is to say that not only is he a certified sports fanatic (Go Blue!), who fulfilled his lifelong dream of being a sports broadcaster at his college radio station, but he’s a passionate musician (trained in classical Indian music) who has channeled his passionate musicianship into a new pastime…amateur jingle composition. And, not that you asked for it or anything, but an OZY jingle could be forthcoming.
