Growing up as an underdog motivated me to take a journey of self exploration. I started shaping my outdoor skills ever since I can remember.

I was practically raised by my grandpa who taught me about life in the open and how to tackle various obstacles.

Along that I used to go on hunting trips with my father and brothers, thus picking up more skills as I grew.

Later I joined the scouts and learnt a wide range of knots, survival skills, tracking knowledge and started to work in a team based environment.

At the age of 15 I started training Shotokan Karate, this journey continues to shape my discipline, mental and physical endurance.

At the age of 17 I started training Jujitsu, expanding my knowledge in martial arts.

BJJ

At the age of 18, I got the chance to move to Dubai to start a new educational journey as an architecture student, and so far it has been a rewarding experience on every aspect. This major improves your mental strength and tests your ability to withstand pressure and overcome obstacles while maintaining your morale.

Since I moved to Dubai I have been engaged in various outdoor activities, and became a member of a caving team (Middle East Caving Expeditionary Team).

Overall, I would describe myself as friendly, optimistic, and straight forward. I like to take new adventures and learn new skills.

Finally, I consider myself lucky to possess many hobbies, skills and talents such as:
