I moved back to Lebanon in 2007 after living in the US for some years. I am Lebanese by nationality. However, the fact that I have moved a lot since birth have helped me shape the man I am today. Worked as a graphic designer and now proving my skills as a web designer as well. Currently the marketing coordinator and web/graphic designer of Quantmed Holding's companies and the Founder of Visions Projection and co-moderator of Projection Word Drops. I am a believer in the power of words and the joy of writing. I was blessed to work with great NGOs and groups. There are good people everywhere, but goodness is only useful when it inflects change.
