About Me!

George is a writer, poet, yogi, and…just kidding, I won’t do my bio in the 3rd person!

I’m an avid reader, writer, and blogger. I recently signed with my literary agent, Jennifer Azantian, for my children’s novel, and am excited to continue to grow in that space. My blog centers on creativity, but also finance, as I’m also an MBA grad and finance nerd.

For my writing, I’ve been selected for the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance’s Dibner Fellowship, and as a mentor for the UK-based WriteMentor program, PitchWars, and Author Mentor Match. Some other hobbies I have are baking (though I’m a total amateur) and volunteering, whether to read to preschoolers or teach English courses. I’ve also recently gotten (very) into yoga to balance my uncontrollable sweet tooth.

Whenever I can, I try and travel back to my native country of Lebanon. Oh, and I’m Lebanese-American (dual citizen) and speak fluent Arabic, so feel free to drop the introductory “marhaban” and I’ll throw back an “ahlan”.

Now, enjoy a picture of me and the pup, Sushi!
