About me:

I have more than 30 years of experience in IT within the educational sector and  in the retail.  I believe the knowledge and skills built up during this time make me candidate for any relevant role to my profile.

In my last role as a CTO at Evolvence I was responsible for international schools, Retail shops and Restaurants across UAE and the Gulf. 

I am confident that with my previous experience and expertise my contribution will have a positive impact on the business.
