Mohamed Marwen Meddah

I'm an IT professional from Tunisia, currently working as a Project Manager in a leading Web Development company.

I was born in Tunisia; lived in Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Jordan and Tunisia up to now; and visited a lot of other countries all around the globe. I wish to visit more soon.

I'm an active member in the Tunisian blogger community and it's a personal goal of mine to convert as many people as possible to blogging.

My personal blog is “Subzero Blue“.
