Murad always had a natural drive to run a business.  He started his  first business at the age of 12.   The  youngest of eight, he was born with a competitive streak.  Sales and marketing came naturally.  He is a graduate of the University of Washington with a BA, and a concentration in Marketing and Information systems.  He also went to the Foster School of Business  Sales Program and Retail Business Sales Program.

Prior to joining YSK Events at its inception, Murad  was in B2B Sales.
