A wonderful voice

As you may or may not know I am the host of Nightline on DubaiEye.

Are you out there?

Doing things that put you and your ideas out there is terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. For me it is 100% practicing what I preach. As a professor of communication, I teach how to tell a great story. And I get out there and try to do it. This was my most recent […]

A conversation and the music of Kamal Musallam

I had the pleasure of speaking to Kamal Musallum, about his music and more and Kamal was easily one of the most interesting musical artists I have ever spoken to. Take a look at this video to get an idea who I am talking about and pay attention to the tune, there is a quiz later! […]
