Good old days when I had more hair

Apart from my full time job I used to write a lot and speak on a lot of conferences and events around the world. After spending over a decade working in the Middle East I made the decision to move to the UK after I was awarded a Global Talent VISA ( see video below for my journey )

While I love my full time job my real passion has always been in touching and writing about Technology. I am currently working on topics like Cloud Security and Artificial Intelligence which is why I made this blog to share some of the knowledge I have collected along the way.
