I was born in Morocco to a Syrian mother and English father. As a child, I travelled much of the world with my parents as my Dad was a diplomat with the Foreign Office.
My web consultancy business allows me to work from anywhere that has an internet connection, which means I can indulge in my two real passions – travel and photography.
It was the iPhone, and particularly the Hipstamatic app, that got me into photography just over 2 years ago. Once I started taking the shots I was hooked.
My most recent trips have been to the Middle East (Syria, Morocco and Egypt), Norway and Las Vegas (for their Beard and Moustache Championships). It’s a long story but I have a strong connection with the world of facial hair and competitive facial hair growing and styling.
I’ve been based in Dahab, South Sinai, Egypt for about two years now and that’s where my passion for iPhoneography really began.
