RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
I’m originally from Lebanon but grew up in Boston for most of my childhood. I moved to Dubai in 2005 for my first job – that was a stroke of luck. In 2005 I was in Doha at a friend’s office booking my flight back home. While I was on call with the travel agent, two guys walked in and we started talking and one thing led to the next and they offered me a role to be part of launching a major news network in Dubai. I changed my flight details on the spot and flew here instead. Had I not been there and met them my career would have taken a whole different turn.
