Zaatari Portrait.jpg

I was raised on a tropical island (true story). Always been surfing, I fell in love with world cinema at an early age. I truly enjoy being on set and although I approach each project I take on with the utmost dedication, it never feels like work. After developing my eye as a cinematographer, I begun to write and take on directing gigs.

 

Nowadays, I work equally as a director and cinematographer, sometimes simultaneously, choosing to challenge myself on every job with a shape shifting style and a hunger for originality. I hope the work speaks for itself. I have lived in Paris, Byron Bay, Dubai, and now find myself in Los Angeles.

Most importantly, I'm an avid collaborator, a curator of ideas, I suck at golf but go to the range anyways, I like short hikes and value experiences over financial gains - but a little of both can't hurt.
