OVERVIEW

Hi, I'm Kanzi!

I'm currently working as the Office Operations Coordinator for Qualtrics' EMEA offices. Before that, I moved to Dublin from Beirut two and a half years ago to singlehandedly set up Bookwitty.com's Dublin branch. The task encompassed everything from finding a premises to building a team, sorting out WiFi to pensions — all the while working closely across disciplines and regions, from Marketing in Montreal to Accounting in Beirut. It's been a fun journey – you can read about it in my feature in the Iconic Members Series here. Moving to a country with such rich produce has also rekindled my love for everything food – you can follow that adventure on my food blog, Not for Display. If you want to get in touch, you'll probably find me elbows deep in a bowl of tabbouleh, or reading up on the future of AI ("Alexa, have you reached singularity yet?").

It's probably easier to just email: kanzi19@gmail.com. 

Can't wait to meet you!
