About Faiz Al-Najdi

My actual name is Syed Faiz Ahmad and I use a pen-name (nom de plume) of Faiz Al-Najdi. I am basically a civil and structural engineer and write (in English) for passion only. I grew up in Karachi-Pakistan, accomplished bachelors degree in civil engineering from NED University of Engineering & Technology, Karachi and later obtained a masters degree in Structural Enginering from Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok-Thailand. I am presently living & working in Riyadh-Saudi Arabia since April 1997. I work as Chief Structural Engineer for M/S Saudi Oger Ltd – a large construction contractor in Saudi Arabia. I write on current affairs and also on light reading for common readers on issues that appeal to me from time to time. I am inspired with Art Buchwald.
