I was born in Dubai, UAE. We decided to move to New Zealand around 1996 when I was about 12 years old. We lived in NZ for the next 12 years where I finished high school & University.
New Zealanders have a knack for creativity, and I’m really glad I got to live there and learn a few things from them. University also taught me many things, but the main thing is if you want to learn something new, or if you want to do something, you must go out and learn it and do it yourself.
I was a slow learner as a young man, so I did not know what I wanted to do at a higher education level. I first started with computer programing, moved to hospitality then management and finally stuck to Media Studies as I took some electives in that field, and really enjoyed them so I shifted one last time to Media Studies. I graduated with a Bachelors of Communications, Majoring in Media Studies.
I moved back to Dubai in 2010 I started working for my families company Education Zone, where I got to explore and implement my creative skills. I worked there for approximately 7 years. My younger sister and I started the second branch of Education Zone in Bahrain in 2014.
I got married in 2011 and moved to Bahrain in 2012 so we (my wife and I) can be close to both our extended families. My wife gave birth to my beautiful daughter (Anfal) on October 31st, 2012. Update: On January 29th, 2016 my wife gave birth to our son (Yousif).
At the end of 2017, I resigned from Education Zone and established Feels Digital Productions. I have been working hard to get Feels Digital to a place of recognition and trust in Bahrain, I feel the momentum in clientele recently proves that this company is growing at a healthy pace. I do find it hard to manage the company at times as I am not well versed in accounting and finance plus I do not have many people in my network since I have not lived in Bahrain for long. Other than that I really love this company and I will do everything in my power to push it forward.
This is my story so far, of course missing all the great stories in between. If you ever want to chat with me contact me through Instagram or email, I know I look a little standoffish but I love to chat and I am very friendly
