As a Middle East based journalist I have been writing about defense, security, legal and social issues from the United Arab Emirates for the last 10 years.

Most recently I was the Middle East Bureau Chief for one of the largest defense business publications in the United States, Defense News.

I have authored articles in local newspapers such as The National, and Gulf News.

Currently I write for international publications in the U.S. and Europe as well as provide consultancy to regional and international Think Tanks.

Born and raised in the United Arab Emirates I have studied communications and psychology at the University of Malta and I am a proud Sudanese citizen.

Feel free to contact me for media commentary on regional defense and security issues, story commissions in and around the region or defence and security consultancy.
