I have had many years of professional experience working within both Arabic and International Broadcasting organisations. I have spent time living and travelling to the Middle East but was born and raised in the UK. I have received both under grad and post grad qualifications and am working towards a doctorate in the field of the politics of Middle Eastern Identities. I am particularly interested in the Levant region because it is a region I am familiar with; linguistically, historically and culturally. I hope that my blog provides an informative approach to the Middle East from a European and Arab perspective. I hope it challenges thought and allows for debates. I will not always focus on events in the Middle East however, I may give personal accounts of experiences, I may even share some funny stories with you from time to time (apparently I have a good sense of humor) and I may even share the odd personal photo from my collection of images that I have taken in the Middle East. At times I may address academic issues and theories providing critical insights into events and at other times I may simply provide commentary on news events from the region.
I am new to this and I am keen to give this a go. I have been told by many friends that I should write and present a different perspective and one that may not necessarily be known.
I hope you enjoy.
