Faisal has always been passionate about the study of cognitive behavior and its associated generational ramifications, as well as the key role in which psychedelics will play in revolutionizing the mental health landscape.

In Faisal’s free time, he loves swimming, surfing, reading and spending time in nature or with his family.
