Why did you choose to join Mott MacDonald?

I was inspired by my father who used to be Mott MacDonald’s client. He always spoke highly of the company and its staff. As a young engineer, I was looking for opportunities and challenges to progress my career. I was certain I would achieve my goals being part of Mott MacDonald.

What is the best thing about your job/role?

The best part of my job is having the opportunity to be involved in the construction process of some fascinating projects, especially projects that become landmarks, and the best part about working for Mott MacDonald is working with a dynamic team of people that are ready to tackle any challenging project that comes their way.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

It’s dynamic, supportive, respectful, professional and technically superior.

What project will be one you tell your kids about?

My 6 year old twins love visiting shopping malls. Whenever I take them to one of the malls that I have designed, I tell them that I was part of the team that built this mall.

What is the best thing about living in Dubai?

Dubai has earned a world-wide reputation for its exemplary and harmonious multicultural society, which is undoubtedly the envy of every civil society in the world today.

Who or what inspires you?

My main inspirations are my achievements and failures in my daily life. Failure teaches me to get it right next time while achievements get me closer to my goals.
