Arafat was a college dropout drummer when he slipped on a tagline and stumbled into the world of advertising. Starting in television and radio, he was an early advocate of putting everything online and going social.

Arafat has worked with a variety of advertising agencies and tech companies in six countries across three continents. He owes money in all of them.
