Hello, thanks for checking in to see what this is all about. I am an authentic American-Egyptian hybrid who tries to bring the best elements of both heritages together to have a positive impact on the world.
Below you’ll find some details about some of the many faces that I manifest on this site. If you are looking for more of a CV/Resume style breakdown, you might want to try the LinkedIn link at the bottom of the page.

Writing is my primary creative outlet, though I also dabble in other mediums such as photography, drawing and music. You will find here writing samples of my science fiction and poetry and, of course, creativity cannot help but be applied to other elements of this site as well.
Toastmasters, Imagined Anew
Since joining Toastmasters International in 2012, I have found the encouraging communities to be a source of great personal and professional development. My Toastmasters journey has been diverse, ranging from the club above a pub, to corporate clubs, to advanced clubs, to online clubs. In each community, I have benefited from the opportunities to practice communication and leadership skills in a safe, encouraging and fun environment. You will find here some of my insights and ponderings born out of my Toastmasters experience.
As an imagineer, I seek to practice and promote means by which we can imagine new and better futures for ourselves, our communities, and our world through what I call imagineering – a portmanteau of imagine and engineering. First imagine the possibility then engineer, or plan and act, to make that imagined outcome a reality.
Since 2016, I have been running Making it Real, a workshop that guides participants through the practice of imagineering to begin establishing a mind set of the possible and crafting the first steps towards making it real.
In addition, I offer one-on-one Clarifying Conversations, to help tease out opportunities for imagineering.
Other is what I usually have to put down on forms and surveys seeking to quantify my ethnicity. I can play that game here too, Other, keeps my options open to provide other content that may not necessarily be quantifiable on the about page at this time. If you get it, you get it, if you don’t, stick around, you might.
IMAGINE Anew! Imagine a new you! Imagine a new world!
