|Hi, I’m Mahad. I’ve really enjoyed worked in Marketing at the micro level, setting up campaigns across Social, Search and Affiliates for Printerpix and at the macro-level consulting clients through building predictive models. I really enjoy data science and using Python, SQL and Power BI. I am looking forward to understanding Marketing more holistically at Flock.
Outside of work I love to go to the gym, swim and used to use a steam-room almost daily pre-COVID! Recently I have picked up the electric guitar (one of my lockdown hobbies). I also am trying to get into photography, this has been put on a hold given lockdown measures. I am huge on binge-watching series and reading the occasional book, I like spirituality, self-development and non-fiction books on an interesting topic – happy to hear suggestions! My all time favourite book is The Power of Now.
