    About him


    I followed statistical engineering studies open to various professional areas. Though, I was particularly interested in the digital industry and happily started as an e-marketer for two reasons:

    - There is a plethora of available, measurable and instant data to help web based businesses, bringing accurate answers to questions like: How do Internet users interact with ads? How do they use an online shopping cart? What do they say about a brand?
    - I was tempted to invest in the world wide web, as it is low cost and provides a wide range of creative business ideas.

    In 2010, I co-founded, along with a digital artist, a cultural ezine, Tounsia, linking women community nationwide and abroad. This portal is concerned with several themes such as society and citizen feminism, not to forget lifestyle niches in the hope to increase chances to monetize the project. It is now 5 years old. Constant updates upon webdesign, editorial guidelines and business model had to be done to match both community and advertisers expectations. Community has been growing around a project which has slowly turned into a hub of talents, opinions and actions. Branding has been a passionate and an evolutionary challenge.

    This is why I am eager to exchange with web entrepreneurs. In 2012, I co-launched a web critics ezine, with a focus on new startups and digital economy challenged to democratize e-commerce, to promote e-tourism, etc.

    Last years, Tunisian people and media have been increasingly interested in socio-economic insights stirring fervent debates around political programs. I wondered how to use both my statistical background and my passion for the online media. The answer was so close: More and more data-journalism blogs were rising across the web producing and/or visualizing data. I was incited to start which evolved thanks to readers suggestions and questions, and to the support of engaged citizens and NGOs promoting open democracy.
