A brief description of your career history?
Xpand is my first full-time job. I had the opportunity to commence the job soon after I graduated from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I am technically an Electronics and Communications engineer with a master’s degree in Enterprise management. I have some project management and sales experience in my backpack too!
What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?
Being aware that time is of the essence, knowing that I am in an exciting phase of my life where I need to achieve something, also my alarm clock?
What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?
Augmented reality and artificial intelligence
What is your greatest achievement? (This could be either work or personal):
To have had the courage to come all the way to Hong Kong from Dubai and make the place my own. Also having a master’s degree by the age of 23 is somewhere at the same level :)
What is the best thing about your role?
There is SO MUCH to learn! You get to talk and interact with so many interesting people. I always wanted to do something where I could connect and talk to people, now it’s my job to do that so I’m not complaining.
