About Me

At the age of 8, I chanced upon the concept of home automation, and it fascinated me; a decade later, I designed and programmed an automation system for my parents’ new house. At the start of my career, I was in charge of a single machine unit; a decade later, I am now in charge of a vast array of heavy machinery and electronic equipment spanning many countries. Keeping my innate curiosity alive, I have always looked to enhance my deep regard for working hard and assimilating knowledge, while staying resilient and not losing focus for years on end.
Observing my father since my childhood has instilled in me a profound respect for putting in one’s best effort at all times. It is a code he followed sincerely, putting in hard hours when at work in a foreign country, or when becoming the car mechanic for the family. His attitude inspires me, and encourages me to handle new job responsibilities and working locations with enthusiasm, pushing for excellence in some of the most unforgiving climate conditions on the planet.
My willingness to work hard has dovetailed in with my passion to acquire, and apply knowledge. When I was 12, I learnt how to install a satellite dish, and then did it for a fee for many people in my village. Staying for years in the Saudi desert with nothingness all around me, I turned to books for company, my open mind evaluating new ideas and gently calibrating the way I function. Once, a big crane broke down in a remote drilling area. I assiduously went through its literature in detail, travelled 800 Km to the site, and fixed the issue in half an hour which experienced engineers were not able to do for over a day.


I love to travel and visit new countries
