I discovered my passion for acting when we flee Iraq to Syria in 2003, and I fell in love with the Syrian dramas. After leaving Syria, I lived in Belgium for 8 years and hanged out with a group of young theater actors. We performed a lot of small one night sketches. Once I settled down in Portland, I went back to Syria to perform my first play there and it continued for 10 days. I just finished shooting a TV show there, and will get back next year to be in a short movie. I love reading about other cultures, and I speak fluently English, Arabic, Turkish, and Farsi.
