Born in Cairo, Egypt on the 28th of February, 1980. Ever since he was a young boy, he was infatuated by the automobile. Later in his teens he started participating in local races in Egypt and created a prominent name for himself. He has been racing for the past 15 years in the automobile and motorsport industries since he started working. He worked all across the Middle East and also in Egypt within both industries.
