Just a few weeks after my new employment here at HQ, I got to experience Codegarden 2019, and WOW 🤩! What a crazy and fantastic way to kick-start my Umbraco career, having a blast with all my new colleagues and getting to meet our friendly community.

I am quite talkative, but I also love to write code, develop software and solve difficult problems. This is perfect for my new role here at HQ since I will, amongst other things, be busy helping and supporting our valuable customers (and maybe you) by discussing and finding solutions to different technical issues.

I am looking forward to making a difference for all Umbraco partners and the community by helping them with any questions and issues they might have.

So who am I?

I am quite an IT magician, and I have a passion for web development, which is why I am up to date with the latest contemporary technologies… But before I leave you completely behind, here’s a bit about me and what I do when I’m not at Umbraco working my magic.

I am 29 years old, and I’m living in Odense with my girlfriend, where I have been living all my life…. Well almost, except for the fact that I was born in Lebanon.

You could call me a family person since I spend a lot of time hanging out with my family. We are a HUGE crowd and we are always having a fun time!

In my spare time, I also spend time doing MMA training and playing soccer with my friends… I even joined the Umbraco Unicorns... and by soccer, I mean real soccer, but we also play quite a lot of FIFA on the PlayStation – can’t lie about that 😉.

Other than that I also love traveling the world and exploring new places, meeting new people, and experiencing different cultures. I feel very fortunate for being able to do so. Traveling brings me such joy in life and creates memories that last a lifetime.

Last but not least, I’m also a very creative person and I always have my head full of new ideas and things I want to do and develop. You’ll probably hear me talking a lot about all my brilliant ideas 😜.

I can't wait to learn so much from all of you Umbracians, and I already feel like a part of this unicorn family.

See you around Unicorn Square!


Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.
