Prior to joining Quandary Peak Research, Khosh held various engineering positions at Yahoo, Microsoft and Samsung. After leaving Samsung, he founded Tilofy (for Time, Location & Unify), an AI-powered trend forecasting SaaS platform. Tilofy's engine analyzed massive amounts of unstructured data every second to predict consumer and behavioral trends in their infancy and long before they become mainstream. Tilofy was used by some of the world's biggest brands, agencies and media companies, including Red Bull, Altria, Wipro, Hershey, Henkel, Unilever and Samsung, empowering them to "disrupt, not to be disrupted."

Omar Noureldin was interviewed about why the Supreme Court is tackling so many big issues at a time. "I don’t think it’s a coincidence, with this conservative super-majority, that they were willing to take up (the) gun case,” he said. “There have been a number of litigants in the conservative legal movement that brought these cases in anticipation of this current moment.”
