We asked Mohamed a few question to know more about him.

A novelist

Life. Education usually covers the basics, while work life experiences are the real teacher.


How do you start working on a project?

After brainstorming, I try to sketch the first thing that comes to my mind even if I don’t know that much about it. Then I check out references or similar material over the web.  Then I would get back to re-edit my sketch after the new data is there which would help to Avoid similarities. Draw other options. Pick one.  Then start working on the project process.
