Syed.Director of Media

Syed Hussain leads our Media Department, Before coming to Civilian, Syed cut his teeth at some of the top media agencies in NYC. The guy knows his media and he knows his beer. Let’s get to know him a little more.

When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A cartoonist. I used to create and post cartoons to my Geocities website back in 1998, which while impressive at the time, are probably best gone the way of AskJeeves

A social cause you care deeply about and why?

Animal Rescue. You wouldn’t think that an animal rescue would ever be overwhelmed with a breed as desirable, beautiful, noble, intelligent, and sophisticated as the great Shetland Sheepdog but the time I volunteered for a dog rescue in Long Island when 30+ shelties were dropped off made for some fun and fulfilling weekends

If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?

Social influencer, YouTuber, or a professional gamer. Three “jobs” that really shouldn’t exist to begin with.

You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?

Conan O’Brien
Vince McMahon
President Barrack Obama

In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)
