About Me

Former student at the American University of Beirut with a BArch in Architecture, I am currently in charge of project management at Almada Architects in Dubai. I have tackled turnkey projects on both cost plus and contract basis. I am presently responsible for handling commercial and residential projects from the client contact to design development onto handing over. During my three years at Almada Architects I have acquired experience in site supervision and closely dealt with subcontractors.

I am a highly motivated, committed, passionate and flexible person who strives to deliver exceptional performance in whatever assignment I undertake.

I believe that the fact that I lived in the KSA, Lebanon and the UAE, as well as tackled both French and American educational systems, opened me to social and intellectual diversity. I am capable of adapting to people with different backgrounds, personalities and culture and I am comfortable in working in multicultural teams. I am able to break linguistic barriers thanks to my fluent French, English and Arabic. I am also proficient in the use of computer aided design softwares as well as Microsoft Office.
