Hello, I'm Mohamad.

Mohamad El-Husseini

I'm co-founder and lead engineer at Nimbus Workspaces.


I work with Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Recently, I've gotten into functional programming, particularly Elixir.


Nimbus Workspaces
Ruby on Rails

Nimbus Workspaces is a SaaS project management app for civil construction companies. I design and implement new features, and maintain existing ones.


Gibran is a Natural Language Processor I wrote in Elixir, a functional language built on the Erlang VM. It's a port of WordsCounted.

Bolão Brasil 2014
Ruby on Rails

Bolão Brasil 2014 is a social game I wrote for the World Cup. Over 1,000 games and 200,000 predictions were made in the month it was live.




WordsCounted is an extensible Natural Language Processor written in Ruby. I used it as a natural language analysis tool for Inkk.

Snakes & Ladders

Snakes & Ladders is an object-oriented implementation (with my own twist) of, well, Snakes and Ladders, the classic board game.

I18n Lazy Scope

With this Ruby gem, you can use lazy lookup with custom I18n scopes, making it easier to manage and organise your locale files.


web apps

Ruby Word Count

This is a Sinatra web app I wrote to demo some of the things you can do with my Words Counted NLP.

Ruby on Rails

Inkk is a social blogging platform inspired by Medium. It has a clean interface and a great way to curate and manage content.

Ruby on Rails

Gamezilla was an e-commerce marketplace for video game enthusiasts to buy, sell, and exchange their video games. It had a great UX, where listing, buying, and selling was distilled into a few clicks.

Ramblings & Disquiet

Occasionally I ramble on about things—and occasionally it's useful.

About Me

I come from a small town called Shmustar near Baalback, Lebanon. I was born in Wari, Nigeria, but I grew up in Beirut and moved to London in my teens.


I'm originally from here. They invented the alphabet, and they make the world's best hummus.


I grew up here. I discovered Monty Python, Ribena, Mr. Kipling, and the Arsenal Football Club.


I went to uni and worked here! It's also where I made incredible friends and unforgettable memories.


This is where I live! It's beautiful, sunny, and I get to eat Moqueca when I want. Did I mention Rio?

Pro-Tip: I was born in Wari, Nigeria.

Eventually, I ended up in Boston, where I studied and worked for many years. These days you'll find me with my family in Sāo Paulo, Brazil.
