I am a multidisciplinary designer and social researcher who uses design tools to address social, business and environmental issues. Being brought by Syrian-Lebanese parents in a South American country helped me to develop adaptability and high empathic skills. Most of my projects evolve around social innovation, considering how design tools can create social impact into improving people’s lives. I combine trend forecasting, marketing, design thinking and service design tools in order to deliver possible solutions to society’s issues.
We are, all of us, makers. Or, perhaps, I should say, we are all able to make: we grow, raise and cook our food, we create solutions to problems, we fix things when they are broken.

I would like to change that belief with my research and engage more people into making.
