He started his career in 2011 in the United States of America, where he held several leadership roles in the F&B and front office departments at one of the biggest convention hotels in the world.

Then he moved to the Sheraton Ankara Hotel & Convention Center and Lugal, a luxury collection hotel for a multi-property position in the front office, reservations, and revenue management.

Afterwards, he moved to Doha in 2019 as the Director of Revenue Management at The Westin Doha Hotel and Spa.

During the pandemic, while the DOSM post at The Westin Doha was vacant, he started to head the sales and marketing team, and was officially appointed as DOSM in March 2023.
