I was born and raised in Kuwait until I was 17 years old. I spent my childhood and teen years at Kuwait Sea Sports Club (SSSC) as a member of the swimming team and then I joined the sailing team when I was 15. I graduated from Romaithiya Highschool with 95.8% average ranking 13th over Kuwaities.
I was granted a scholarship from Ministry of Higher Education to study in the US and I chose to major in Petroleum Engineering attending one of the best schools in that field. That's when I moved to Coloardo and stayed for 5 years in pursue of my BSc. I graduted in 1999 and moved back to Kuwait to join Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) as a petroleum Engineer as part of West Kuwait Development Group. I learned a lot about technology and business while working for KOC but then decided to make a strategic career move to join Kuwait University Scholarship program.
In 2001, I was admitted to Georgia State University Robinson School of Business to work on my MBA and specialize in Computer Information Systems. I met a lot of facullty members who were influential in my teaching style these days. In 2003 I was granted the best international scholar award and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia where I spent 7 years working on my PhD in Management Information Systems.
In 2010 I graduated from University of British Columbia and moved back to Kuwait to be a member of QMIS facullty at the College of Business Administration of Kuwait University. Since then, I've been teaching courses about technolgy, MIS, e-commerce and system analysis and design. My research topics cover trust issues, human computer interaction, e-government and e-health.
