I am a Muslim actor, filmmaker, educator, and advocate currently based between LA and Toronto. I hold a Master's degree from Central Saint Martin’s College and am a graduate of the Drama Centre London.
I have performed in Canada and the US, throughout Europe and in Russia. Some of my TV and film credits include: the new Quantum Leap on NBC, AppleTV’s SEE with Jason Momoa, Shadowhunters, Station 19, and the recent feature film, Eat Wheaties!, featuring Tony Hale.
In addition to being an actor, I have produced dozens of films with my company, Lifeguard Productions, co-founded a non-profit called Women on Screen, and serve as a diversity and inclusion consultant for film and tv with my former co-chair of the ACTRA Toronto Diversity Committee.
Presently, I am developing two limited series, as well as writing a children’s book and soon to be animated television show.
I am represented by GVA Talent and The Characters Talent Agency for theatrical and managed by World Builder Entertainment.
