I am a Syrian designer who grew up in Kuwait until I was 17. I moved to Beirut, Lebanon to pursue my Bachelors degree in Graphic Design at the American University of Beirut. After 5 years of living there and absorbing the culture and lifestyle, I had to move back to Kuwait where my parents were. Coming back to Kuwait after 5 years was very different and cold. I attempted to work for a while there, but I felt I still needed to do more; both in terms of academics and personality. So I decided to continue my Masters in a new place, Italy. Another very rich country to absorb a lot from. So here I am at the Poltecnico Di Milano studying Product and Service Design; another design discipline that triggers my creative mind.
I can call my self a traveler and this makes me accept all kinds of people from the most diverse backgrounds. I am very picky with my work, so I will stay up all night repeating the same task, until I get the best out of a project. I come from a strict design school, both in terms of deadlines and grading, and that makes me work well under pressure. I love helping people and drawing smiles on their faces.
