Znood was born as a result of two common problems all Lebanese face: not knowing where to find a certain item and
not knowing how to get to the place that sells the item we're looking for.
Znood allows you to look up your local stores, check their photos, and view their location on the map. Make sure to "like" your favorite stores and share ahead with your friends!

founder & ceo
Abdo foresaw the potential of Znood while living at a walking distance from Facebook and Google's
headquarters in Silicon Valley. He packed up his bags and came back home after living in the
states for nearly seven years. Abdo's experiences are countless and very diverse which enabled him
to master product design, creation, testing, and distribution. Abdo, while a perfectionist and
lives by the motto "Everything less than perfect is worthless", also acknowledges that the path
drawn by imperfection's breadcrumbs is what leads to perfection. Henceforth, Abdo is always in his
users' shoes and has huge ears listening to them. Give him a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org !
In his spare time, Abdo enjoys knocking the soccer ball around and having philosophical
discussions about random topics.

Photography & Art Director
Ad Achkar developed lenses where other people had eyes. During his academic life at USEK
(Universite Saint Esprit de Kaslik) in the more cosmopolitan area of Beirut, Achkar found room to
fine tune and bring into focus a talent that had chose him, animating his life. It is this very
talent that bestowed unto him the highest academic degree given in USEK's history for his senior
project, "God Bless Our Home."
A hunter of moments, Achkar perceives, retains and then creates bringing inspired reality created in the imagination to life. Achkar's photographs are born as a result of improvisational accidents, experiential reminiscences and a spur of the moment ultimately breathing life into still images.
Un-captured photographs are moments lost in time, an ideology Achkar finds to be be frustrating and yet eternally motivating. Time, space and reality seem to be in a constant struggle with him, but when looking through the lens of Ad Achkar it is evident to whom's will the image leans.
