#GoodPeople: Neil Dubey
Our customers are extraordinary people. Here are their stories.
Ross Perot once said: “If you see a snake just kill it. Don’t appoint a committee on snakes.” Dual degree medical and business student at George Washington University School of Medicine and University of Cambridge Judge Business School, Neil Dubey, doesn’t endorse killing snakes, but he feels like this quote perfectly sums up his can-do attitude.
If Neil could give a gift to anyone, it would be SoulCycle classes to Michelle Obama. It has been his dream to tap it back with FLOTUS at West End SoulCycle.
Exercise has always been an important part of his life. One of Neil’s favorite early memories is spending hours bouncing around on a gigantic trampoline with his best friend, Rohan. “I could never do a flip, but I could get mad air,” Neil confessed.
I will be devastated if Hugh & Crye doesn’t design professional white coats for doctors. If I get stuck wearing a baggy one that doesn’t hug my torso, Pranav’s going to hear it from me.
The last time Neil smiled so big it hurt was Match Day 2016. Two of his closest friends from medical school matched into great local hospitals, which means more adventures in DC while he finishes his final year of medical school. Which led to him mentioning, “I will be devastated if Hugh & Crye doesn’t design professional white coats for doctors. If I get stuck wearing a baggy one that doesn’t hug my torso, Pranav’s going to hear it from me.”
Neil’s most prized clothing item is his H&C Denali. “That bad boy is so versatile. I can suit up in it, or wear it with the top two buttons unbuttoned with a pair of Levi’s,” said Neil.
If Neil were to get a blue ribbon this week, it would be for giving a TED talk, and surviving to tell about it. He was truly worried that he might not make it through.
Luckily he did, so that we could find out which animal most represents him. Neil’s spirit animal is some sort of big cat, likely a cheetah. It’s only fitting then, that cheetah print was the pattern of a suit that he wore last week during an experience that brought him and some of his newest friends together. “A bunch of the lads in my MBA program bought tacky suits on EBay and rolled up to a formal event wearing them. We were brought together by mutual embarrassment, and danced like no one was watching,” explained Neil.
That led us to ask what Neil actually dances to when no one is watching. It turns out he’s most likely to be playing Work from Home by Fifth Harmony. “You ain’t gotta go to work, work, work, work…” except, you probably do. So we’ll let you get back to it.
