About Me

Hello! I'm Faisal, born and residing in the vibrant city of Baghdad. My academic journey in civil engineering led me to achieve a Master's in Environmental Engineering. My career path started with the Iraqi Engineering Union and evolved into a role as a GIS and Data Analytics Specialist at ICRC. Alongside my professional endeavors, I had volunteered in various groups in Baghdad to assist those in need, and making some events related to youth activities.

My interest in technology and entrepreneurship frequently takes me to conferences and events. I'm also co-founder of the Baghdad Toastmasters Club,

Furthering my education, I pursued a second Master's in GIS at Aberdeen University, aligning with my career interests.

Traveling and cultural exchange is one my passions. I enjoy when guiding visitors through Baghdad's heritage areas, (Also Istanbul as I consider it my second city)
Like to sharing historical tales and talking about architectural and political narratives behind them.
