Samad Siddiqui got his start with Apple at the tender age of eight. A fortuitious exposure to a Macintosh LC II at school led to not only a desire to learn everything there was to learn about the Mac, but also a keen interest in computing and technology which ultimately turned into a profession: a twelve-year career at Apple—both in the retail stores and a corporate role—and many years working in educational technology both before and after Apple.
Samad enjoys spending time with his family: his wife of 13 years and his three wonderful children. He also is an avid Trekker who enjoys discussing how awesome Star Trek is and how it has influenced our own future for the better. Samad enjoys Star Trek and Apple for the same reason: they both demonstrate what a potential future can look like—unlimited possibilities!
