Khaled saw a computer for the first time in his final year of high school in Alexandria, Egypt—and has been BEYOND hooked ever since. He studied Computer Science and Human Computer Interaction at Virginia Tech and then went on to start a PhD program. But (shocker!) he left shortly after to join a startup that was eventually acquired by Rackspace. After a few years of helping lead their Corporate Strategy, he got the startup itch again and joined James at Crowdtilt.
