Holding dual master (MSc) degrees both in management of information systems from IESEG School of Management in France and corporate finance from ISCAE in Morocco. The passion for computers and cybersecurity, on the other hand, has started from an early age which resulted in a professional interest in business and information technology (IT) alignment enabling me to reconcile between acquired academic background as well as my relavant hands-on experience and technical expertise in cybersecurity.

Mainly involved in the application security for a little over 7 years now mostly as an independent contractor, and have worked for two years with HackerOne as a security analyst assisting with vulnerability and bug bounty programs’ management for various renowned companies, as well as closely coordinating with a large community of security researchers.

Also an active actor in the bug bounty community to which I cherish contributing with as much as I possibly can while hacking on different programs. Currently ranking 11th on HackerOne leaderboard with over 700 security vulnerabilities responsibly disclosed to over 120 high-profile organizations, the likes of Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook, Uber, etc.

Most of the time, you’ll find me working remote from coffee shops or airport lounges I pass by, while digital nomading and traveling the world for a little over 4 years now. I have an avid thirst for adventure, exploring places and cultures which led me to visit 35 countries and counting in 4 different continents while I’ve lived in a few of them for a handful months. I am fairly passionate about running, cycling, swimming, hiking, DSLR/drone photography and skateboarding.
