Ethics & Aspiration

I aspire to keep this authentic Damascene craft alive for many generations to come.
I hope that the young generation will keep this handicraft going because it represents the history of the country.
I hope that this handicraft is protected by the government and supported by the private sector.

Damascus Old City

Damascus old city is my body and my soul. I cannot stay away from it for more than couple of days.


I enjoy listening to classical music and love to travel.
