10 years ago, I have started my career in journalism as business editor at Al-Mal Newspaper, an Egyptian magazine covers finance and business sectors. I used to report, edit and lead a data-driven unit for a newsroom: Data analysis, data visualization, and data-led stories. Then, in 2012, I have founded Infotimes.org, the first Arabic Data journalism platform in the Middle East. Till now, InfoTimes has produced more than 300 data-driven story and served several local and international clients like Yahoo Maktoob, Akhbar Elyoum, and Petra, the Jordan news agency and Al-Fanar Media. I have been shortlisted by GEN’s data journalism awards twice in a row.
