A self-taught filmmaker and entrepreneur based in Paris. Started film at the age of 17 after winning a competition to write and direct my first short film in 3D in Abu Dhabi, UAE. 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. A failed attempt ended up turning into an award-winning feature documentary that paved the way for successful second attempt. It is thanks to the film that I had the chance to construct my life from scratch in Paris, France.

Today, I create films around arts and culture, and founded a research and tech startup 'blank' focused on the fashion industry.
