Doha Living

Doha, Qatar

July 2007 to July 2010

We relocated to the Middle East in July, 2007 where I accepted a position at one of the worlds largest architectural firms, KEO. Click here to see my job outline.

Doha was not the easiest place in the world to live but it was definately interesting to learn and adjust to the local customs.
