Bio

As a son of a diplomate I became a world traveller and have been fortunate enough to visit and live in every continent, which have been very usefull and made me appreciate what I/we have. My learning journey go back to my childhood in france to teenager years in syria and southeastasia to Iraq and then to a short stay in England and finally in the US which have been home since 1990. I have learned long time ago to give back and did volunteer my services wherever I am needed. I did join MER-C (Medical emergency rescue commitee) in 2004 and worked with them in many disaster areas. Banda Ache where the Tsunami hit was an experience I will never forget. I am married and blessed with two lovely girls age 3 and 5. My wife, a research coordinator at the university of washington, will start residency in June with a plan to become a children psychaitrist. This is an exciting time in our life and I look forward to support her acheiving what she wants to do.
