Merjan took up canoeing in 2001 at Ivanhoe Grammar School in Melbourne, Australia, and in 2003 started training with the Australian national team. He holds a dual Australian-Lebanese citizenship, and since 2009 competes for Lebanon. He missed qualifications for the 2012 Olympics due to a bad cut to his hand sustained in 2011. In 2016, he became the first Lebanese slalom canoeist to compete at Olympics. He finished last in the C-1 event.
