I’ve always wanted to tell stories in one form or other, though it took me a while to settle the form. Video games had been my initial choice back in high-school, before I decided on to animation, and flirted for a while with the idea of graphic novels.
Unfortunately the higher education options available to me at the time did not match my dreams and aspirations. Then one day my college English teacher placed her hand on my shoulder and said, regarding a story I wrote for an assignment: “this is so good!” Her words lay dormant in my mind for years while I obstinately tried to figure out how to pursue a career in animation without any formal training.
I’m a writer, born, raised and living in Dubai. I still enjoy video-games though I watch a whole lot less animation than I used to.
