I was born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia but in true nomadic Bedouin fashion have also lived in London, Boston, New York, Paris, Bali, Singapore and finally is now based in Dubai.

My palate started its development at the age of 8 when I started to accompany my parents to Michelin starred and other top restaurants mostly in Paris and the South of France where our summer home is.

I started my Instagram account (Bedouin Foodie) to share my passion and experiences in food, art, and travel. I’ve been on a few trips with The Hungry Tourist and love them. Next destination – Sri Lanka
