Azad Maqsudi

Bio:

My name is Azad Maqsudi, I recently graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelors in Marketing from the Stillman School of Business. Since graduating from Seton Hall I currently help manage a small time floral boutique in my hometown of Montville, New Jersey. I’m currently looking to branch out into a marketing/advertising career full of opportunity and the chance to truly make a difference on this Earth in some way or another. I’m creative in my thinking process, humorous but most of all a hard worker.

What do I do best?

A tough question but personally I’ve always loved the idea of leading others. During my time at Seton Hall, I had numerous classes that required squad captains to be accountable and further more drive the idea and decisions we make as a group and I would always volunteer for that position.

What makes me the best?

My charisma, my charm, my ability to connect with others on a personal level make me the best for what I love to do. I’m also extremely creative and try to incorporate that in everything I do.

What are my passions?

My passions are include music, everything from country music, indie, rap and spoken word. My taste stretches far and wide! I am a huge fan of film and television, anything Stanley Kubrick touched was a masterpiece in my eyes, I also make my own short films in my spare time. Art, producing it, and learning about famous artists and movements. Everyone from Picasso, Van Gogh, Michelangelo to Andy Warhol and Basquiat are huge influences on the way I draw and paint.

Favorite:

Motto:

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”  - Anais Nin
