Started career as an Electrical Supervisor in Equate Petrochemical, Kuwait where he had his father working as a Senior Electrical Technologist. After working for a certain period with Equate Petrochemical, he joined another company extending his service to US defense force in the Middle East at a capacity of an Electrical Engineer for implementing remote distributed power generation systems powered by conventional fossil fuel in the Middle East. During his tenure in Kuwait for more than two years dealing with distributed power generation with fossil fuels, it was always his concern to reduce the environmental and economic impact created by this. So he decided to end his tenure in Kuwait and started focusing to sharpen his expertise in solar PV and Co-Founded Smart Solar Global, India which is now one of the market leader of Solar EPC and O&M in South India. Gained intensive training and development experience of more than 10 MW of solar PV systems in a distributed generation by collaborating with well-known PV panel and inverter manufacturers. With this expertise, he decided to move to Dubai in 2014 when the country came out with a very ambitious plan of incorporating 75% of renewable energy by 2050. Before joining GOPA International Energy Consultants GmbH, he worked as a Solar PV Expert with Dubai Investments PJSC and another private company in Dubai for more than three years exploring all perspectives of implementing innovations in Solar PV sector. He is also one among the first DEWA Certified solar expert in Dubai.

Currently managing more than 80MW of distributed solar PV projects including some of the iconic projects in this region with GOPA Intec.
