I’m currently working at AstroLabs as the Learning & Development Manager. I’m heading AstroLabs Academy, which focuses on teaching practical workshops on Digital Marketing, Analytics, Coding, UX/UI and Startup Development.

My role entails planning our workshops, developing curriculum, partnerships for custom programs, event management and teaching many of the classes.

Besides the hands-on workshops at AstroLabs Academy, you can also join our free learning events at our meetup groups : https://www.meetup.com/Dubai-Digital-Tech/ and https://www.meetup.com/code-labs-dubai/

I also handle web development for AstroLabs (on the main website, LMS, Job site and blog), most tech systems, and Digital Marketing (including our social channels).

Now, I’m working on planning out our calendar for the remainder of 2017. If you’d like to get involved, let us know!


I’m currently focusing on leveling up in full stack JavaScript especially on the client side (with React JS).

I’m also enrolled in a cool virtual programming community called Chingu, working on a really cool non-profit project.
