As a photographer I am interested in documenting my environment, from urban landscapes to social issues. I work to find the aesthetics of the chaotic life that surrounds us.

In 2007 I became a member of Activestills, a photography collective that documents social issues in Israel and Palestine, including the experiences of African refugees and the lives of Palestinians under the Israeli occupation. With Activestills I have curated and participated in local and international exhibitions, books, and in work with many media outlets and NGOs.

I moved to the US in 2010, since then i live inTucson Arizona, Cape Town, South Africa and now I am in Louisville, Kentucky.

At the moment i am an MFA student at the Hite institute in the University of Louisville
