Today’s guest is Umber Ahmad. Umber’s family moved from Pakistan to Marquette a city in Northern Michigan right before she was born. She attended MIT for undergrad for a degree in genetics, went to U of M for a master’s in public health and also holds a MBA from Upenn. She has worked extensively as an investment banker and counseled people on how to expand their own brands. When her famous chef client Tom Colicchio caught wind of her baking and tried it, he decided to back her as she opened her own bakery/wholesale business. This lead to the formation of an online bakery operation with international wholesale clients and the opening in 2013 of Mah-Ze-Dahr, her bakery storefront in Manhattan.
