He has more than fifteen years of professional television experience as a director, executive producer and consultant with major Arab satellite channels.

As a recipient of a Smith Richardson Foundation grant, he authored a policy monograph on Arab satellite entertainment television and public diplomacy. He also co-authored Arab Television Industries (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009, with Marwan Kraidy), and is currently working on a book-project based on his dissertation, Youth-Generated Media in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which examines alternative media cases in both countries.
