I’ve lived in Paris, Dubai, Toronto and Colombo. But I’ve refused to grow up anywhere. A former copywriter, I started my career at Young & Rubicam, soon moving to Saatchi & Saatchi.
I left Saatchi in 2011 to pursue my love of cinema as a film director. Since then, I’ve written, directed and produced commercials, corporate films and documentaries for brands like Emirates, Land Rover, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Toshiba, Samsung, Proctor and Gamble, Unilever, OSN, Qatar Airways, Sony, Sharp, Anta Sports and a number of Dubai-based startups.
My first short film, ‘Security’, has been part of the Official Selection at over seventeen film festivals around the world, and has earned wins and nominations for Direction, Screenplay, Cinematography, Acting and Editing.
I’m currently in post-production on my first feature film, ‘Beneath a Sea of Lights’ - set to hit international film festivals in late 2019.
But while I do enjoy telling my own stories,
I’ve always loved helping brands bring theirs to life.
