Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

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.
