Personal
 
Born in the suburbs of New York, he now lives in Washington, DC with his wife Lana, who is an attorney at State Department, his toddler son Ansel, Pamuk the fuzzy dog they rescued from Turkey, and Latka the cat, who barged in one cold night and never left.  You may find Dr. Vahab and his family enjoy riding along the Potomac river on their vintage tandem with trailer in tow.  You may have also seen Dr. Vahab on the front page of the Washington Post a few years back when he was featured in an article for installing the very first ever Little Free Library book exchange for the District of Columbia!
