About me: My name is Michele, and I’m originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. I have an advanced degree in Economics and worked in Washington, DC for 17 years, before moving with my husband and two miniature poodles to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where I lived and worked from 2000 to 2004. Doha, Qatar has been my residence since 2004. I worked for Shell Oil Company in Qatar before becoming a published writer relating intercultural experiences between the Arab world and U.S./west. My published works have appeared in magazines in the United States, England, and Qatar.
About this website: I created a blog so my readers can find out more about what it’s like to live in the Arabian Peninsula through my eyes (at least). Since my time in the Arab world has been such an ”eye opening” and life-enriching experience I have felt compelled to share it with others. If you are interested, you will find a separate page with links to my published articles.
