The second day of our #RevealOttawa series sees Ali Kazal, a software engineer by day and big time adventure seeker by night. Joining us for this series, Ali gives us a glimpse into his thrill seeking, and adventure packed life.
Who would you say you are? How would you describe yourself?
I’m Ali, and I’m the founder of a travel-based app named Wandure, as well as an Instagram page called ‘@lureofadventure.’ As you can probably tell already, I’m a big computer nerd, but I’m also huge on travelling. I enjoy adventures.
When it comes to fashion, what is your personal style?
When it comes to my personal style, I typically find myself on-the-go all the time, hopping between meetings and different adventures, so light, breezy outfits are always top of the list.
From this designer’s collection, what inspired your choice of outfit? How does this communicate your personal style?
Definitely their vast contrasts. I’m a software engineer but I see myself as an old soul, which is the main reason for the outfit – a modern look while maintaining the old-fashioned aesthetic. The outfit accurately conveys my life – the fast life of an entrepreneur, as well as my thrill-seeking travel lifestyle.
What are your thoughts on Mario’s collections?
Not at all the typical suit-and-tie, the designer’s collection is very intriguing and unique, and I love it!
