As a kid, I grew up painting and drawing on my room's plain white walls, wore my Woody (Toy Story Film) outfit and acted the whole film to my parents and family friends, played my short scale guitar as if I was Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) in my room while I only knew one chord, and acted like an Opera singer on my school lunch breaks in the middle of the school's playground. Growing up I knew and always felt that art is what I wanted to do, but I did not understand it totally since my mind wasn't mapped to look at education
paths and how they can help me achieve that.

Regardless I started being more serious about art, and what makes a human artist. I started learning the Piano and did not play it as much because who knows why. I then became more serious about Guitar and held the instrument seriously, because it is one of the few instruments that can be held close to one's body and soul, it is a very personal instrument, then I realized, Art should be personal, I wanted to know how to make art personal, and I figured art that can't be touched but touch, is the form to go for. I then started learning my software, I self taught myself how to use Adobe Ps, Lr, Ai, and other various software. I kept practicing for hours until they became second nature, but I do not feel the proficiency in using software makes any difference from an artistic point of view, Design is more about research, ideation and brainstorming. At 16, I came back to live in my hometown of Cairo, Egypt and I decided to study Film. As I learned how light, color, and cutting affects a person's mood and feeling, I began to experiment with how film can shape a viewer’s emotions, for example, making one feel something like awe, or happiness, or maybe sadness. With film on my mind, I started
learning how to work with 35mm photographic film, which sparked a passion for black and white documentary photography. I love nothing more than going out on a dull day and shooting people with a Nikon or (preferably) a Leica loaded with Kodak TRI-X or Ilford HP5. To me, what matters is that it's a 35mm lens on a portable camera with 400 speed film. It was this original film format that allowed me extra ability to capture human emotion, and to understand that a good picture can be made even with color and the latest
technology missing.

Although I was studying film, shooting loads of documentary photography and totally loved it, I have been watching branding and what brands do with their design, as worldwide superpowers and what products they offer, brands like Apple, Coca-Cola and Adidas. Therefore the only logical move after finishing Film School was learning what makes design the best thing human can achieve. Design is the ultimate form of humanity, design is what makes us human. We were built to Analyze, Troubleshoot, Research and Solve. Read Less
