Imran Ali Malik currently lives in Oakland, CA with his wife and two children. Born to parents who were born in the newly formed state or Pakistan, but himself raised in Princeton, New Jersey, Imran has been through a number of unique experiences in the attempt to get to the essence of what it means to be a South Asian, a Muslim, a human being— and more recently, a husband, a father, and a man shouldering real responsibility.

A diverse and eclectic set of educational experiences inform the work Imran makes: public schools, private schools, Catholic school, military school, medical school, and eventually a collegiate study of Islam and Theology.
