Hello…from Dubai (sorry for the silence)

Hi.

It’s been a while since my last update and here’s what has happened since then:

  • I moved to Dubai to work with Momentum MENA/FP7 as Social Content Manager. My work focuses on content and digital not just in the Middle East but also Asia and Africa. It’s been an enlightening 8 months here in the United Arab Emirates, a mix of excitement, stress and adventure. Looking forward to many months more.
  • I lost my mom a month after I moved to Dubai. I flew back in time to send her off to the cemetery. I’m thankful I had that chance at least to see her face before we buried her.

So, yes, those are the two main things that have happened. As I’ve been mainly focusing on adjusting to life in Dubai and finding my feet at work, updating this site hasn’t been a priority.

Now that I’m getting more used to the swing of things, I’ll try to resume regular blogging to share marketing news and updates I’ve come across, and especially about trends and insights about the Middle East.
