Qualifications / Experience:
I have a diverse professional background that combines experience in marketing, corporate sales, and start-up. I hold a degree in Business Management from a reputed University in 2011 and then went on and developed a deep understanding of the sales process, including prospecting, lead generation, and closing deals. I am skilled at building relationships with clients and identifying their needs to provide them with customized solutions that meet their business objectives.
At my most recent position as a Sales Manager for a top insurance provider, I was in charge of overseeing a group of sales reps and fostering revenue expansion throughout the MENA region. We increased revenues by 20% the first year I was in charge, and we continued to outperform expectations the following years.
My key areas of expertise are creating strong product visions and strategies, establishing OKRs, managing the discovery and delivery of new products, and making sure that a company’s primary focus is on product-market fit.
In addition to my work as a Sales Manager, I have also started two fashion clothing brands. The first brand, launched in 2013, focused on Print-On-Demand fashion with meme inspired styles with our clothes being currently sold at leading retailer in the UAE region (Virgin Mega Stores), and the second brand, launched in Q3 2023, focused on premium swim apparel. These experiences have given me valuable insights into the challenges of starting and growing a successful brand.
I am a seasoned crypto enthusiast and currently full time in web3 with a passion for NFTs. My crypto journey began in 2015, when I first became interested in the technology behind Bitcoin and the distributed ledger systems.
In 2019, I became particularly interested in the potential of NFTs as a new form of digital ownership and began investing in various NFT projects.
Why am I running for the Community Council?
Doodles is a brand that particularly resonates with me, as it combines my passion for creativity, art, and fashion. I have been a very active community member since I became a doodler exactly 2 months after reveal.
I was part of a group of doodlers who voluntarily approached various NFT projects to secure whitelist allocations that were later on raffled in doodles discord as a reward to the doodle community. After several successful high value WL raffles, I have personally approached Mushy to form an outreach team of well-connected doodlers that have participated in the creation of Rainbow Exchange leads which I am proudly part of.
Overall, I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to contribute to the growth and success of Doodle brand and to work alongside a talented and passionate team of individuals who share my vision for the future of art and technology, I will fully dedicate my time and effort to the brand given the fact that I am currently 24/7 devoted to web3.
