It’s always been about storytelling for me. Great-looking animation with a thoughtful and confident voice. Pace is important. And the characters are everything. There’s nothing like creating original characters that have distinct and life-like personalities. It’s as if you could meet them in person for conversation and a latte. I love that.
My work flows out of a rigorous study of human anatomy, drawing and clay molding. My favorite example of this is “Country Matters,” a short animated film I made using the anecdotes of Lebanese immigrants and American travelers. It was my great honor to have this film featured in a nationally distributed Lebanese newspaper, Annahar, and to have it reviewed by Pixar animator/director, Doug Sweetland. Mr. Sweetland judged it to be a “finely animated film on a mature and upfront subject.”
