About the Author
Waqas has been called 'an emerging young Leonardo da Vinci' for his work in various fields.
He is currently Artistic Director at The Khalili Collections one of the world's great art collections and is simultaneously completing his postgraduate studies in Neuroscience at Kings College, London.
Previously, Waqas was Global Correspondent at FIRST Magazine, where his exclusive interviews included world leaders in government, business and academia. He was also the editor of Holy Makkah, the first-of-its-kind exploration of the sacred city, which received praise from UNESCO, the Commonwealth and the Vatican.
Born and raised in Britain, Waqas has since lived in several countries across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. He has degrees in Economics (BSc, SOAS) and International Relations (MSc, LSE), but his real education came from the five years he spent travelling the world researching and writing The Polymath, his first book.
