I am a writer, co-founder, an entrepreneur, a photographer, an explorer, and an idiot. Because of these qualities, I like to think I’m important. I’ve worked in Baghdad while a war was raging, in Bahrain while riots were ensuing, and in Saudi Arabia where women don’t exist. I lived in Italy where a simple task takes days, and in Australia, where men wearing pink shirts is the new norm.
While exploring twenty-seven countries on five continents, speaking bad Italian, horrible Spanish, and decent Arabic, I’ve befriended Americans, Arabs, Australians, Brazilians, Chileans, Italians, and New Zealanders, all while faithfully remaining the odd one out.
Through years of craziness, staring death in the face on four (five if I’m lenient with myself) occasions, meeting hundreds of beautiful people, and exploring a myriad of new cultures, I now feel arrogant and important enough to commit my overvalued thoughts to fake paper and tell people exactly what to think. The culmination of all this randomness, is Random Rationality: A Rational Guide to an Irrational World.
I can be reached on Twitter and Facebook. In my spare time, I love drinking wine, playing soccer, taking photos and maintains a photography website. I’ve worked for renowned construction management companies in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and an oil company in Bahrain. I’ve founded a software development company with my best friend, CookieJar Solutions, developing the RateThis! iPhone/Facebook/Google+ app. Check out my author website, or buy my book here (to help me feed my wine addiction).
