I am an aspiring photographer and filmmaker with a diverse background and a wealth of knowledge at my disposal. As a Lebanese-Canadian and a true citizen of the world, I have lived all over the globe including Paris, Lebanon, Dubai, Montreal, Vancouver and Mexico. I am always ready to discover new locations and broaden my life experiences. After a few months filming music videos in Europe, I decided to move to Mexico to learn Spanish and explore new horizons.
From an early age, I was always interested in the arts – especially dance, a passion that remains to this day. At fifteen, I discovered the world of photography through the work of Steve McCurry, famous for his images in Afghanistan, as well as through my uncle Tony Kanaan, whom I admired very much; I fell in love with it. In particular, I became interested in portrait, abstract and documentary photography. Last year, my family opened a gallery in Lebanon, KAF, to share great works of art with the world.
In 2010, I graduated from a three-year professional photography program at Dawson College in Montreal. Upon graduating, I received an award for my portfolio entitled “Bodies”. Wanting to build on that experience, I moved to Vancouver to take the Film Production program at Vancouver Film School. This served to confirm my love for photography and cinematography.
With such a strong worldview, the ability to converse in four languages and building off a diverse background and years of experience, I am ready to tell stories through photography and film and become part of the multi-cultural world in which I will strive to make an impact.
