I have studied Mathematics in Wrexham, North wales,UK. Also got a degree in Electronic Engineer from Devry, Chicago. I served in the Jordanian army for two years at the General Headquarter, Amman. After doing this compulsory service, i had worked as service Engineer, installing and servicing Bio-medical and Laboratory Equipment for almost 10 years. During that time i had traveled to Germany, Greece and Japan for several service training courses. Also, i had been involved for many years in Light Decoration Systems for wedding parties at private Villas. Now a day, i work as a freelancer tour guide in the Country of Jordan. I have been working as a General Tour Guide since 2009, and i just love it. It's an interesting kind of job, moving around, and meeting English speaking people coming from all over the world. I escort them, help them and give them the related information for such particular Historical or Religious site. As a tour Guide, i have learnt how to bring Joy and Happiness to people. Therefore, i managed to gain friendship with celebrities, modest personnels, and lovely guests from the USA, UK, Australia, Israel, Canada, Finland, China, Indonesia, Philippine, Burma, Malaysia, Japan, and Hong Kong.
