Raymond Khoury


Lebanon (b.1960)

Raymond Khoury was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1960. His family moved to Rye, New York when fighting broke out in Lebanon in 1975. After graduating from Rye Country Day School, he returned to Lebanon to study architecture at the American University in Beirut. A few weeks after he graduated, civil war erupted and he was evacuated from Beirut. He ended up in London where he joined a small architecture practice. In an attempt to explore other career options, he earned his MBA at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France, and joined an investment bank, which he stayed at for three years. Not satisfied with world of investment banking, he sought a more creative career, and hooked up with a banker who dabbled in the film business. Though unintended, he ended up with a career as an acclaimed screenwriter both in London and in Los Angeles.

Khoury lives in London, with his wife and two young daughters.
