Today we’d like to introduce you to Mahmoud Saad. A tech-professional and music artist endeavoring to spark distinctive forms of art in music compositions using only computers and synthesizers to compose, orchestrate and arrange.
Let’s talk about the work you do. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
It’s an honor and privilege to speak to you. I am an ambitious student pursuing a cybersecurity degree with eager to contribute developed knowledge in a specialist role. I am adaptable and driven with a strong work ethic and the ability to thrive in team-based or individually motivated settings. I design and implement security solutions in high-availability environments. and adept at delivering strong risk management practices. One of my biggest hobbies is music. As a music composer, I am adapting to different musical styles and pieces with ease, producing music in genres such as soundtrack, ambient, and downtempo. I am also known for composing, arranging, and recording over one hundred songs with more than 3 years of background in the industry. I am also a passionate photographer successful at capturing long exposure subjects for use in magazines and independent publications. I believe curiosity and innovation are photographer’s greatest allies. Fearless creator of candid and revelatory imagery.
What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I tend to work too hard and too long at a time. Often that takes away from my family and I feel bad about that. However, it can’t be helped. I have a deep need inside of me to prove to others, to myself, to anyone who knows me that I can do the impossible. What people don’t often realize is that every long day or night that I work, every time I take on more responsibility than I need to, that I am burning inside in a way that I cannot tell anyone.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
There is opportunity everywhere, you have to be open to it. When you have put in the preparation and steps, you can seize the opportunity that is luck. Find your why. Get clear on your why. When you know your why, your core belief where you’re operating from, the next step, coming up with a strategy, and an action plan to make an impact on your audience, your company, or the world. What we focus on is what we build and what we attract. You can’t just desire a goal. You need to make the goal a reality from the choices you make each day. Write down, in detail, where you want to be a year from now and work backward on the calendar, brainstorming the strategies you need to implement to get to your goal one year from now. You need to sell yourself first on your dreams, so you have real enthusiasm and authenticity with your audience and your clients.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Being smart can increase your chance of success. To me, being smart means knowing a lot of information and being able to rattle it off without a lot of effort. In order to get smarter every day, it is important to give our brains many new pieces of information and experiences. They can be simple, such as reading a new book or they can be more complex, such as learning new skills that further develop a strong career. I always tend to value multiple streams of income, find a balance between passion and purpose and you will have an increased chance of success.
What’s next for you?
I aim to constantly learn new skills about life, about myself, and how can solve complex problems. I plan to write a book about a distant future where machines take over repetitive jobs. In the future, the world is going to need more computer engineers, programmers, and technicians. The education system will have to include more computer programs into the curriculum. Binary code will accompany the ABC’s and 123’s. Python will be taught alongside English and social studies in grade school. As these varied examples of current technology suggest, intelligent software is gradually spreading into common households. However, it is also arising in the field of medicine where doctors have used it to achieve accelerated predictions regarding what types of antibiotics can best destroy bacteria. Of course, it exists in a business where marketing professionals use it to make accurate predictions of what sort of purchases shoppers will make next. In terms of technology and humanity, there is one word to describe what is coming in 3047: ubiquity. Intelligent software will be everywhere.
