He then started a job in Saudi Arabia at the Saudi Plant Society. His wife was also working there. He was working in public relations and marketing. He agrees that he found true love after getting married.
He said, before marriage, he wasn’t in love, it was after marriage that he fell truly in love. Soon, after marriage, they shared common goals, had the same stance on issues, and thus let them fall in love.
He now has a daughter, named Julia. He admits that his daughter is more Saudi than American. Yet she will grow up being a Saudi and an American.
