I am an architect based in Kuwait with extensive interests in a variety of different fields. My knowledge base allows me to come up with creative solutions and ideas when approaching problems as I often view things from a unique perspective. I am also a swift learner who can adapt to any environment as I am the most motivated when challenged.
