Hello! My name is Mikey and I am a nerd.

I’m a former high school teacher, actuary, and investment quant. Born and raised between Nicosia and Beirut, I later spent a decade and a half studying and working between Durham, Chicago, New Orleans, and Brooklyn. Currently, I’m based back home in Beirut.

I am the Founder & Executive Director of a social enterprise I founded called afikra | عفكرة, and serve on the management team at a regional family-owned actuarial consulting firm. See tab above for information about those and other projects.

I am passionate about salsa dancing, social justice, basketball, data, design, hip hop, film, and stand up comedy. It’s very possible that, in a twist of fate, I am watching a YouTube video related to one of those topics at this very moment.

Big hug,
