I found the problem (bike safety in Naperville Illinois) and he planned the solution. Uzair taught my class every morning for 10 days. He treated the students like designers and they responded by providing the City with several viable options for reducing crashes at trail/road intersections.

Patty Hicks

Technology Design Teacher / IPSD204

I had the privilege to work with Uzair on a 10 day session in a Computer Science Discoveries course at Glenbard East High School. Uzair brought in a unique lesson build around the design thinking process. His persistence and drive to improve the students learning environment through social emotional learning strategies is unprecedented. Uzair is a team player who is concerned about helping others. His communication, teamwork, and presentations were top notch.

Peter Hostrawser

Business Teacher / D230

Uzair not only knows his stuff when it comes to product, he's a passionate evangelist for the best and most effective product management and development methods. Uzair has a gift for taking a roomful of people at vastly different levels and adapting to each individual's needs so that nobody feels either left behind or too far ahead.

Abbie Moore

COO / Petco Love

He's been able to take an idea from concept to one of the most highly rated and more importantly, loved apps by its users. He not only possesses skills as a Product Manager, but he's also a great leader that is able to get people involved with a product excited about its prospects.

Raj Bhardwaj

Human Interface / Apple

I am always so impressed by Uzair's calm and calculated way of leading a team and building products. He cares so deeply about everyone involved and gives everyone room to be themselves. At the same time he understands the dynamics of a business and how to make products useful and profitable.
