A filmmaker and entrepreneur based in Paris. I started film at the age of 17 after winning an opportunity to write and direct my first short film in 3D in Abu Dhabi. I never stopped learning since then.

Being born in the wrong place forced me to take a break and become a refugee twice by the age of 23. One failed attempt ended up as an award-winning feature documentary that paved the way for another successful attempt. It is thanks to the film that I had the chance to continue living in Paris, France.
