About me

I joined the WMF in fall 2010 as part of the annual fundraiser team, then moved to a job that focused on Chapters relations, then due to the fact of being a humble Arabic Wikipedia editor, my role shifted to Arabic Projects.

I come from an architecture design background (don't get me wrong, I am not that corporate slave one!). My previous professional experience mainly focused on empowering social participation in design decisions, and developing building techniques in remote and aird climates..and yes, I can bake desert bread under the sand!

I met Wikipedia in 2007 and we have since been friends in different ways.

My work

I am currently a contractor of the Wikimedia Foundation's Global Development team, working on the Arabic Language Initiative.

Throughout the past year, my work focused on exploring opportunities and programs that can support the growth of Arabic Wikipedia, develop its quality and quantity, and expand its contributors base. We are almost done with our strategic plan that defines our goals and future plans for the next couple of year.

We are seeking partners in the Arabic speaking region, who can support our mission and inspire us with new creative ideas. Please, do reach out to me if you are one, or if you generally have any questions. I work from home, in Alexandria, Egypt (UTC+2).
