Part of me is a poet and origamist. I once survived a 10 day shelling and bombing attack from the Syrian regime against the civilians in north Syria in 2012. On the other hand, I was part in the making of "Transformers 2" that was shot in Petra - Jordan, where I met Megan Fox in person ;)
Most recently, I were part of doubling the revenue of Airbrake.io (SaaS) in less than a year by building and optimizing the customer's journey.
