"You have to believe that you're doing what you want and not wanting what you're not
Icame to the US in 1982 joining my father who was working
on his Ph.D. at the time. I left Iraq following the start of the
Iran-Iraq war and have not been back since, due to terrible political
and economic conditions in the country. I now consider myself citizen
of the world, a person that had lived in many places yet was
looking for the perfect home which I gladly have found in Aptos,
CA! I completed my studies of high school and college in Lexington,
Kentucky. I worked in Kentucky following completing my MBA, as a
part-time and full-time faculty. I also tried to enjoy life through
travel and adventures.
My passions are the outdoors and learning new things about new places
and people. I visited California several times during the
90s and I was struck with the beauty of the Bay area, especially
Monterey and Santa Cruz. My philosophy isto combine teaching with
a good location . I like teaching business because it keeps me updated
on what's happening in the world. Business is in everything and
everything effects business. I like sharing information
and relate the concepts on a global perspective. I like learning
and sharing the cultural and social differences around the world
and their impact on life and business. I often think globally that's
why I am working on developing an International Business program
and love to teach with an international emphasis.
I like to travel because travel has expanded my mind and way
of thinking and analyzing life issues. In 97 I traveled to Europe
and did a backpack and train ride through western Europe. I
covered, England, France, Spain, Italy and Switzerland. It was great
trip. I liked it so much that I decided to take a group of students
on a Europe adventure, we covered all of the mentioned countries
plus Holland and Germany. I am totally impressed with the English
manners, the French class, Spanish friendliness, and Italian
history and food.
My recent adventures have taking me to Vancouver, Alaska,
Panama, central Europe, and Japan. My recent visit to
Panama was a great adventure and cultural experience. I believe
that if people travel more and know more about
each other will have greater peace on our planet. Travelling
is totally one of my passions.
I also like outdoor activities like Mt biking, hiking (wilder ranch),
skydiving. ) and whitewater rafting . I love rafting and high rapids,
it's a great rush. I have just got into surfing and boogie
boarding not really good at it yet but I am enjoying the learning
process. Love it so far!
On the intellect side, I like politics and life issues.
I try to be informed and aware of world issues I like to be
challenged and always up on learning new info. Recently I
have been reading Zen philosophy and learning to achieve
mindfulness. Learning different philosophies of life expands
your horizon. What is yours?
Life can be a bitch or a beach depending on your outlook of it.
I despise war, discrimination and bigotry. I am not much on
those who are far leftist or rightist, I like a happy center on
most issues.e.. Well I think that's all for now. I work
best with those who have initiative and are self motivated.
Would love to hear from you
