Rather than being a barista I am a person who likes to design not only drinks but experiences through coffee. I put all the dedication and passion to each drink that I develop.

I am a computer systems and equipment maintenance technician, but that day, 3 years ago when I took my first coffee course I fell in love.

I currently live in the United Arab Emirates and I am the head barista in the coffee shop where I work, where I am in constant training with the SCA.
