Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! My name is Uzair, and I'm an undergraduate student studying Computer Science (AI) at Stanford. In addition to technology, music is something I've been crazy about for as long as I remember. Fun fact: In 2018, I listened to 116,892 minutes (or 81.2 days) of music on Spotify. Some of my favorite artists are The Beatles, Vampire Weekend, John Mayer, Arctic Monkeys, and Noori.

So whether you're a diehard fan, a budding audiophile, or a skeptic wondering what the fuss is about, come and roll up for the magical mystery tour!
