Born in Amman, the capital city of Jordan,
which was originally known as Philadelphia or the city of brotherly
love. My biggest passions (in no particular order) are:
Communication with people through social
gatherings, ham radio and email.
Surfing the World Wide Web.
Travelling to visit new countries and to expose myself to
Reading philosophy and new age books.
Listening to a wide variety of music.
Singing as a tenor member of the YWCA choir.
Practice Yoga and relaxation exercises.
