I’m a passionate videographer, producer, and content creator who believes
visual storytelling is one of our most powerful tools. Growing up in the war-
torn country of Somalia I saw people in my community come together to
share their stories, I realized that this sharing this was an essential way of
learning from our past.
Because of my past experiences, I am motivated to tell stories of overcom- ing obstacles such as war and conflict in order to settle in a new country. Through telling these stories, my work also shares the experiences of adopt- ing a new life and understanding the culture of Canada.
My preferred tool is a small camera, such as a DSLR or mirrorless because they are always on hand and I never miss recording a story. In 2016 I founded a multilingual online platform called Canada Teaches.
