Ali lit up the room like nobody else I know. Always with a big, cheeky smile, he brought so much warmth and kindness into the lives of people around him. Whether it was dancing on the streets at night or singing while he cooked, he was full of life and laughter.

Considerate, insightful and inspirational, he was a true visionary in how business can foster the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders.

He was taken far too soon in a world that could really use his positivity, leadership and humour right now.

I miss him so much already but am so glad I had the opportunity to know him. My heart goes out to the Dastmalchians, family that he deeply loved and treasured.
