Me

My name is Basil Mohamed Gohar.  Welcome to my home on the web.  🙂

The Short

(other than my height)

I am a Muslim, a father of five, a devoted husband, and a geek.

The Medium

Professionally, I am currently the Director of Software Engineering at SUPER-H Analytics in Columbus, Ohio.  I started in July of 2018.

As for my community involvement, I was the President of the Board of Directors of Omar Ibn El-Khattab Mosque (a.k.a., “Masjid Omar”) from 2012-2018.  I was also the Ameer of AlMaghrib Institute in Columbus Ohio (i.e., “Qabeelat Hayl”) from about 2005–2007.  I then founded and lead Columbus Dawah from 2007 and, technically, still in charge of that (good luck finding it, though!).  From 2002–2004 I was the president of The Ohio State University Muslim Students’ Association.

I am the “founder” of HidayahTech, which is the branding for all my tech-related consulting I have done over the years.

I am an avid geek, programmer, and free software advocate and enthusiast.  I am a devoted Fedora user and I am actively involved (at times more and other times less) with the Xiph.org Foundation.  I am also the founder and primary author of LibreVideo.
