I am a writer and I have a passion for it. Words are my playthings (also: Legos) and I read voraciously. I am a native Saudi with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University and I am fluent in both English and Arabic.
I worked for five years as a project engineer, followed by another five years writing, editing and paginating for a major oil company’s weekly corporate newspaper, specializing in oil, gas and energy topics, as well as covering community events. During that time I also translated and rewrote articles from the company’s Arabic newspaper.
I also have four years of experience writing and editing feature articles and short pieces for a quarterly arts and culture magazine focused on Saudi Arabia and the Arab world.
