|Outside of office, Ali appears to be classy and Harvard-y. Just look at that charming smile!|
|In office, he is more often like this.|
This spring, we have decided to bring back the Meet the Manager Series! And for the first post, we are introducing our Managing Director -- Ali Bayar! As managing director, Ali leads the Harvard Shop team, but also models for the shop on important occasions.
Ali hails from Turkey and is a junior in Winthrop House. Driven by his passion in politics and business, he is pursuing a concentration in History with a secondary in Economics. Outside of HSA, Ali is a Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisor as well as a member of the Crimson Key Society. He indulges in all things Turkish, such as coffee and dangerous amounts of kebab, and will never turn down a game of FIFA.
A: The last song I listened to was "Lonely Boy" by the Black Keys. Great riff. I may or may not sing along to it in the shower.
Q: Last movie you watched? Favorite movie?
A: I just saw No Country for Old Men and it was absolutely amazing. BUT, not as good as my favorite movie, Star Wars: A New Hope. I mean, that scene where he's on the dunes and looking at the two suns...tears.
Q: Where’s the place to go if we want to find you?
A: Probably anywhere that serves decent coffee.
Q: If Hollywood were to make a movie about your life, who would you want to act your character?
A: Edward Norton. They'd need to brown him up a bit but I'm sure he'd do a great job. Or if I keep losing my hair...Stanley Tucci
Q: If you could trade place with someone (dead or alive, real or fictional), who would it be?
A: Any one of Will Smith's kids.
Q: How do you make your sandwich?
A: By fooling myself that Chipotle mayo isn't as bad for you as regular mayo. Also turkey.
Q: Special Talents?
A: Much to the dismay of my roommates and anyone who's know me for 5 minutes, I do a pretty good Christopher Walken impression.
