About Sheriff

An enthusiast, learner, thinker...

I love collaborating with people and achieving challenging goals that most people think are impossible. If you have anything to do with sales, strategy, the Internet, startups - ping me, and we could solve some interesting problems together in the most fun way possible.

I found ALSHOP.com, an online shopping portal and e-commerce company, in March 2008. ALSHOP.com is based in Dubai, UAE and currently has a small team comprised of developers, designers, and business development gurus.

I have travelled and worked in a few countries and built a network of friends from all walks of life and business industries. My education background has been in economics; however, I took an interest in self-learning about people management, marketing, and technology.

From a young age, I wanted to be a part of a business house bustling with talented individuals. I believe I have achieved a small portion of this dream. Nothing excites me more than to meet people who dream big and obsessively push themselves to live their dreams.

Quote

The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. - Steve Jobs
