Born in the USSR, grown up in Ukraine and Egypt in a blended family with mixed backgrounds. This has given me a diverse perspective on the world. My aim is to tell stories that encourage diversity and widen views.

Sixteen years experience in independent film has given me an opportunity to take audiences into the lives of other people, countries and even universes. I believe in projects that broaden the expectations and experience of the audience.

For the last eight years I have shared my experience with aspiring filmmakers and through this I hope to aid diversity and inclusivity in the future of film industry.
