I have been always passionate about audio-visual creations & explorations of life through people and stories which comes sometimes in the style of fiction ,documentary, video art or experimental art ..

I believe that films are made to tell a story, give a feeling .. make you think or make you feel lost and maybe sometimes just to speak your confusion and dark sides ..

I am a film lover who’s exploring myself and my passion of life through many kinds of ways!

Here you are some of those ways in the period of 10 years and more to come nshalla !
