I am a tv and video editor with a wide range of experience, from TV shows and short films to news magazines, social video and advertising. I am beyond grateful to have found success in all of these genres, and love that the diversity of my work contributes to my unique perspective. Still, I find myself being drawn most to stories that center people living in realities similar to my own, but who I may never get to see or meet otherwise. Family means the world to me, and my family and I exist at the cross-section of so many spaces: we are South Asian African American Muslim New Yorkers. We are first generation college grads and second generation Americans. We are small business owners and we are artisans. And, moving forward, I'm choosing to tell more stories that reflect who I am, and who we are, so that, one day, my son can see hear those stories and see himself. While I have over 12 years of experience, including a lot of documentary-style work, I am looking for more documentary experience, as well as mentorship, to help me bridge the gap and start using my talents to help tell the stories that matter most to me.

When I was little, I was afraid to throw anything I owned. A piece of paper, a mailing box, a notebook that is worn out, or an old cloth, everything. I collected everything in my little iron box and kept them in the right order. Now when I look at all my diaries, notebooks, and drive, I know that little habit when I was young echo with my instinctive passion for collecting, sorting, and then arranging things into a new order: to create a narration, a story, a memory. I want to be an editor, I want to shoot and direct. In the last three years, I transformed from a film student to a journalist and now a documentary filmmaker who believes in life's true power and insists on telling a story visually. Until now, I’ve worked on two feature-length documentaries about to be released and produced my own work A Man Aman. I love Verite, a character-driven story, and I always enjoy talking about the forever dilemma documentary filmmakers will face: the unsettled ethical doubt.
