A motivated multilingual tech ninja with a drive for impact and a passion for communication and interaction with people. My comprehensive grasp of technology and solid background in international development enables me to excel in product management. That experience, along with a great team, greatly contributed to the success of Fullstack and other impactful outcomes as evident by some of the startups I have worked on and helped launch. In 2016, I was featured on the popular Arab TV innovation show, Stars of Science where I was selected from thousands of applicants to be one of 12 contestants. My skills as a product manager and generalist carried me to the penultimate stage of the show, receiving 5th place and substantial media coverage. At Fullstack Technology, I spearheaded the growth of the company from a small code team into a development powerhouse with clients across 4 continents covering an array of topics such as internet of things, location tracking, community building & social media, as well as consumer and retail apps. My experience spans across the GCC, United States, and Southern Africa.

A quick thought.

In the summer of 2011, I came to the conclusion that a niche specialisation is not for me. While fascinated by many topics such as code, internet of things, International relations, development, communications, security, psychology, and the environment, I realised that my value add - and passion- lies in gaining skill and knowledge in various topics, then acting as a channel and a medium between these constantly overlapping concepts. The career trajectory I have crafted reflects that whereby I studied international relations, worked with government and communications, then transitioned to NGOs. Afterwards, I delved into the world of tech, coding, and design then progressed to working with tech projects on a larger scale. In the meantime, I worked on side startups that centered on topics such as public health, fitness, consumer retail, and supply chain.
