Ali has had a passion for aviation since a young age. Aspirations of becoming a pilot were put on hold while he completed his education at UMKC, graduating with a bachelors of science in pharmaceutical science and a masters in business administration. During his career as a corporate executive at a healthcare IT company, the desire to achieve his childhood dream never faded. Ali completed his private pilot certificate at Air Associates of Kansas and his remaining certifications at ATP of Kansas City. He loves using both his professional and aviation experience helping future aviators in achieving their overall goals. Outside of aviation, Ali loves snow skiing, scuba diving and spending time with his two boys.
