I am an Israeli Film Director, born in Jerusalem in 1978. I was raised in Nigeria, and return to Africa frequently for various projects. This experience has served as a formative one for me and I still consider Nigeria as my second home. I have a vast experience working in Africa and over 10 years of Directing, Producing, Coordinating and Managing Educational projects, Films and Business Activities. I am currently based in Jerusalem.
Social values and human issues have a significant part in my Films and work. I try to ask questions that touch upon the moral dilemmas of human nature and hope that whoever sees my work will be able to identify with the "other" that he generally does not encounter in his daily life. It is specifically important at this time, when racism and hatred have become a part of our society.
I studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and received a B.Des Degree in Visual Communications majoring in the Broadcast Division. I did my Master’s Degree in the Film and Television Department at the Tel Aviv University and graduated with an excellence diploma.
I directed Award Wining Documentaries, Shorts and Fiction films. My films were screened at prestigious Film Festivals around the world, and broadcast on Israeli and international television. I participated as a Jury Member at various film festivals and run Workshops & Film seminars in Schools and Universities.
