If I were Julius Caesar, I'd speak of myself in the third person - as is in vogue for bios. But while I have many remarkable, astounding achievements, Caesar I definitely am not, so I'll talk in the first person. God knows my mother wishes I ate more humble pie, so here's looking at you, Mom.
I'm a Technology Consultant with a 25+ year applied love affair with technology. I’m a Computer Engineer that studied both software and hardware design, graduating Cum Laude from Ain Shams University - Egypt's equivalent of MIT.
Even before graduation, I started working with NCR. Since then, I've provided problem-solving, both strategic and tactical, to companies like Sony, Ericsson, Silicon Graphics (SGI), and Wacom. On the other end of the spectrum, I've also worked with small businesses and startups.
As a card-carrying Mensa genius with a documented IQ of 154, I can't help but throw myself wholeheartedly at whatever is the endeavor du jour - even though it may stray significantly from my education and prior experience. I live for the challenge.
This is how for example I've found myself designing home theaters with 4K UHD screens and 11.2 channel Dolby Surround Sound. If you've never experienced one of those, prepare to be bedazzled!
My endless love of art, both moving and static, is also how I found myself the Marketing Director of an art gallery at one point, responsible for an $80 million inventory. That role was the perfect fusion, creating a powerful trident that harnessed the synergy of my passion for art, technology, and marketing.
Another love of mine is social media - especially Twitter. Since I enjoy sharing both my expertise and that of others, I’ve amassed a Twitter following of over 116,000, and my followers - the #Amazing #Adamites - increase weekly by the thousands. I’ve thus over the years become a top influencer, particularly in the areas of AI (Artificial Intelligence), Cognitive Computing, IoT, Drones, and Fashion.
I can go on and on, but this is supposed to be a summary. So if you have a problem that keeps you awake at night with software, hardware, audio/video, marketing, or sales, know that I've solved quite a few of those. Heck, even if you think it's a long shot that I've solved something like this before, still try me. It's keeping you awake anyway, so what have you got to lose?
