What are you most curious about in life?
My passion is electronics and everything related to the latest technology. I like discovering different cultures and I am pleased to live in UAE which embraces over 234 Nationalities with great tolerance.
What are the failures that you most cherish?
I used to keep my friends on top of my list even before family a long time ago, but when I had a serious matter in my life I found that my family supported me the most whereby lots of the friends weren’t there for me. At that time I started to rearrange my priorities in life and now the most important rule in my life is: Family always comes first.
If you could go back five years, what advice would you give your younger self?
It would be to study more courses because it would have helped to develop my personality from a practical and a personal point of view. With time I have become completely certain that continuous learning, having good manners and valuable morals, are the secrets of anyone’s success.
What do you do outside of the work environment?
I consider myself lucky because my sons share my interest in sports such as climbing and zip line, and swimming. I consider my wife as my best friend and my life partner, so I enjoy spending my time with my family after work and during holidays & vacations.
What is the most courageous thing you have done in your life?
I left my job in Egypt and came to the UAE 15 years ago to start from scratch. In a hindsight, it was the right decision for me and my family.
What is your favourite film/series and why?
My favorite series is Friends because of the innocent spirit of friendship and comedy that is suitable for all family members. The best film that is close to my heart though is The Godfather movie.
