About me

The health of my family is the most important thing. My parents scarified a lot for the well-being of me and my three brothers, giving us opportunities they never had. I try to make them proud every day. I am grateful for a wonderful wife and our 2 year old daughter Amira. I am a passionate surfer. Be it in the rivers around Zurich or in the rough Atlantic Ocean in Morocco. I love to cook a good Tagine for my friends and enjoy good company, provoking thoughts and interesting reads. Always questioning the status quo.
