Hey there!

I鈥檓 a Swedish-half-Iranian film director based in Stockholm, Sweden, with over 20 years of experience in acting, producing, and teaching, both in film and theatre.

From my early years as an actor in +200 productions in Stockholm, London, and New York, I've since experienced working as a theatre director, production manager, and film editor, always seeing the world through a director's lens.

Drawing inspiration from American movies of the 70-90's, electronic music, and the vibrant world of Amiga games of my youth, my portfolio reflects a journey of personal growth, both in storytelling, tone, and performance.

My work has been featured at Palm Springs ShortFest, Aesthetica Film Festival, Gothenburg Film Festival, and showcased by Directors Notes, Omeleto, Film Shortage, earning awards and recognition at top festivals worldwide.

Let鈥檚 collaborate and create magic together!
