Also, being a studious kid, Amin shone in science and math and decided to pursue a career in engineering instead. Upon his high school graduation, Amin attended an engineering course at Georgia Tech. While pursuing his engineering degree, he realized that engineering was not his cup of tea; rather, having a secure job with a good paycheck was all that he needed.
Later Amin started looking for other opportunities, eventually leading to a field marketing job with the Atlanta Hawks NBA team. While there, he was able to make useful connections, which later helped him settle into a job in the sports industry.
Furthermore, he was promoted to work in game-day operations for the Hawks for three seasons. In the 2004-05 season, he took an internship in basketball operations for the team New York Knicks. He next interned a full-time internship with the Phoenix Suns.
