Q&A with Mustafa

What’s the common thread that runs through your career?

Building a strong community has been at the center of my professional endeavors. I’ve been lucky to help grow various communities over the last decade — from app developers on Facebook to thousands of people who wake up early to party before going to work.

What’s one of your superpowers?

I love figuring out how to turn something (like an event) from good to great. I actually enjoy obsessing over details (like how an event begins or ends) so it becomes an unforgettable highlight for whoever experiences it.

A book you commonly gift to people?

The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker! That book can help someone think like a good event planner or host.

In your spare time?

I spend most of my free time being silly with my 2 year old daughter, Nova. And I try to go to every art or science exhibit I hear about in San Francisco!
