Ziad was born with cataracts and eventually lost his sight because of glaucoma.
He worked as semi professional musician and singer in the Lebanon, where he is originally from. He plays the violin, oud, guitar and keyboards. Ziad came to the UK to study physiotherapy but ended up studying piano tuning, before he subsequently went blind. He currently uses his computer and a midi keyboard controller to reproduce the songs that he used to sing during his life in the music industry.
Ziad's ambition is to record his own CD showcasing his own compositions.
