We had the good fortune of connecting with Hassan Ali and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Hassan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking for me is going against the odds. Get out of your comfort zone. I don’t like being comfortable for too long and always looking for new challenges. I am an actor and have had a good career working in tech prior. I was comfortable and took risks to get into acting and go through the grind. In the end it’s a good feeling because I have been able to make progress.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It wasn’t easy for me to get into acting after having a good career. I like challenges and have an entrepreneurial spirit that gives me confidence. I have made progress in my acting career but it took a while and that’s when you have to stay positive. I will continue to go after what I like. Staying motivated after failing could be a challenge for some but that’s the real test. Failure will give you more experience.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would go on a fun hike in the day , check out some clubs and bars with live music. Check out places for brunch.
