About Me

I have co-founded two ventures to date: Meejana Ltd & Emissary Ltd. The former is a Lebanese restaurant based in Weybridge, Surrey and the latter is an Internet company serving various clients throughout the EMEA region. I am a highly creative, visual and analytical thinker with the ability to apply a broad range of experience to solving business problems. Prior to “flying solo” and forming my own companies I provided management consulting in both business process engineering & web strategy for blue-chip companies including Abbey, FedEx, GKN and GE Capital. I have worked in and around IT since 1986. This is also underpinned by my recognition for professional, academic and civic achievements by The International Who’s Who of Professionals in 2001. Alongside my IT career, I have also designed and directed numerous events, ranging from educational, to corporate and social. These have included the Hallowe’en Horrors charity productions for Fort Amherst in Kent, dinner dance events for 600+ guests, outdoor catering for 10,000+ people, and numerous fantasy live role playing and murder mystery events which I have produced, written and directed. I also deliver IT security consulting and training for SSR-i as an approved IT security trainer.
