Red-Stitch-Khisraw-Jones-ShukoorWho is Khisraw Jones-Shukoor?
A storyteller with family, friends and colleagues, trying to figure it all out, just like you.

What would you do differently from what you do now?
Become an Astro-Physicist.

Who inspires you and why?
Many, many people. Though recently, Dr’s Dean and Ayesha Sherzai. Also my family, who are equally parts irritating.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
How much time you got? Hold my drink…

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Aotearoa. I went shortly after the Christchurch shootings and payed my respects. A beautiful country and the memorial, a profound experience.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Nature. The Peninsula. The Otways. Or my Mother’s dining table, man can she nourish.

IQ84 – Haruki Murakami.

What are you currently listening to?
The Proof podcast.

Happiness is?
Balance… and doughnuts

What does the future hold for you?
