Associate Engineer
My experience and deep interests:
THNK connection: THNKer , AMS Class 07

I was referred to THNK by Turki Al Saud.

 

 

I am originally from Saudi Arabia, and now live in Dubai. I studied Construction Engineering Management before also obtaining my MBA (both in the US). I then worked in construction for 13 years, and completed several major projects (including resorts, palaces, government buildings and mega malls).

 

I have traveled a lot and lived in several different countries, which has made me adjust to different atmospheres. I love food, and love to explore all kinds of restaurants (good food always brings a smile to my face!). I also enjoy reading and travelling, and recently photography (street photography and landscape) which has become a hobby that takes up more of my time - it makes me focus on small details and people’s habits.

 

I believe in being unique; a friend of mine once told me that competition is for horses not humans!
