He is co-founder of DevIneMedia/Hibr, a youth-powered alternative media outlet in Lebanon (that works online, in print, and in person), and is currently focusing on launching AltCity.me, a high-impact media/tech/social impact collaboration space in Beirut (slated Q3/2011 launch), along with a media/tech/social venture startup accelerator program.

He is conducting research on barriers and opportunities for MENA entrepreneurship (especially social entrepreneurship). He grew up between Silicon Valley and Beirut, studied at UC Berkeley (political economy), worked at Stanford University (Communication Dept), UC Berkeley (Education Dept), and Google, interned at Cisco Systems HQ and KQED (SF public media), and moved back to Lebanon in 2004.

In the region he worked as a freelance journalist (radio, print, TV), co-founded Mideastwire.com, worked as a research/communications consultant for the UN/FAO (supporting a policy reform/applied economics research center in Damascus), and conducted (brief) research in Egypt on the relation between regime interests, the education system, and economic development.
