Summary

I am a sustainability enthusiast with over 7 years of experience in sustainability consulting, including green building consulting and interrelated technical services. I have raised sustainability awareness by presenting technical training and non-technical seminars to professionals and general public. I also volunteered in drafting the technical standard of the Lebanese green building certification system. Finally, I have been contributing to boosting my company's sales by taking role in business development activities.
