I am a journalist, writer and children's story writer. I'm also a senior graphic designer. I am a coauthor of a satirical book (2010) entitled “Muzakkarat Zaug Maqhur wa Zauga Makhnu’a” (Memoirs of a Hen-Pecked Husband and a Fed-Up Wife” (Cairo: Shabab Books). I am writing weekly satirical articles, titled Hiyya Mish Tay’a (She can’t stand it anymore), published in Al Wafd newspaper.
I was a fellow of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (Oxford, 2008). My paper, titled "What Inflamed the Iraq War? The Perspective of American Cartoonists," was presented at the Popular Culture and World Politics conference, Bristol University and published in the International Journal of Comic Art (vol. 10, no. 2, pp. 746-788). I received my master’s degree in journalism and mass communication from the American University in Cairo. My Master’s thesis was titled "Egyptian Political Cartoons: Evolution and Impact As Seen By the Cartoonists Themselves." It looks at the role of political cartoons in depicting major events, developments, and trends in Egypt since 1900.
