A creative approach authentic to the heart of each story is necessary.
I crafted my storytelling and story shaping practice through film production studies at New York University and the Iranian Young Cinema Society. This creative education is enriched with knowledge of research and ethics, gained through journalism studies at Langara College, and communications at Simon Fraser University.
To date, I've been generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, and Creative BC.
I have enjoyed creative partnerships with Bravo TV, CMF, CBC, NFB, Java Films, Super Channel, RTA, FKH Media, and Cinema Politica.
I continue to collaborate with Canadian and international production companies, and broadcasters, in various roles. In addition, I've served my documentary community as a board member of the Documentary Organization of Canada
( BC Chapter) and participate as a jury member at film festivals.
