Born on the other side of the world, Dr. Hasib dreamed of studying in America. After his parents split up while he was in the 7th grade, Dr. Hasib made and sold hand painted greeting cards with handwritten rhymes. This launched an early professional writing career when his poems started to appear in the local newspaper. He was also elected to serve as Editor of his high school newspaper. This early work is shared in Muses and Rhymes: 1968-1975. In 1977 he was awarded a Wien International Scholarship to study at Brandeis University. He came to campus with less than $50 in his pocket to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Politics.

He completed his Master’s degree in Political Science at Emory University and his Doctor of Science in Cybersecurity (IA) from Capitol Technology University. During the early 1980s Dr. Hasib became one of the first network engineers in the world and helped to transition two organizations from mainframe to network environments.
