I was born in Spain. I started my career as a business analyst at One World between Amman Boston. In 2001 I moved to Germany where I worked with WestLB bank as a process manager.
In Germany, I went through the most important turning point in my career. The story goes like this; one day a few people gathered in front of my bank to demonstrate about a commercial complex that would be build in a forest in a far away land. I talked to them and understood they devote their lives for the protection of planet earth! The idea shook me to the core… I realized I needed to be more than just a number at a bank, and so I co-founded an NGO called Tatawor in Amman in 2003 and made a career shift into sustainable development.
I moved to London in 2005, where I received my Masters degree in Applied Anthropology and Youth Work from the University of London in 2007. My thesis was about New Media in the Arab world. What are the constraints that stand in the face of the Arab blogsphere’s contribution to the public sphere? I fell in love with both Anthropology and London.
At the moment, I live in Amman; spend my time with my family, mstly annoying my nephews. I go out a lot with my friends, I work at Tatawor, consult organizations on different youth work projects and help run 7iber.com
Throughout my career I realized that I am into filmmaking, reading and sometimes painting… I have some attempts in writing fiction…i like to mess around with the idea of destiny and lost opportunities…I also like to sing, but my voice is not trained and therefore people usually leave the room when I do J
