Mr. Sameer

Chairman of the Board of Advisors

Sameer grew up in Western, NY in a small town called Lewiston, bordering Ontario, Canada.  His parents were born in East Africa– mom in Tanzania and dad in Uganda.  They met on the boat to college in India and fell in love, eventually eloped and married in London before moving to Canada and then, the US. The union resulted in a half Muslim, half Hindu, subtly African, modestly Indian, but mostly American kid.  We think of him as the modern day South Asian Clark Griswold, with a tiny bit more style.

Sameer has sung with a capella groups, taught English in Tanzania, been a banker, a real estate developer, and a professional wrestler (ok, we’re not sure about the wrestling thing, but he does look like he’s been working out recently). Sameer runs Bristow Montessori School which he founded in 2009.  He received his BA with Honors from Georgetown University, and an MBA in Corporate Strategy from the Smith School at The University of Maryland, College Park. He lives with his wonderful wife of 15 years,  Zeena, and 3 inspiring boys.  His life’s pursuits are to find the perfect coffee bean and roast, to try every tea strain on the planet, to listen to the music of everyday life, and to try and do “a little good in this world”.
