    About me

    New Professional in London.

    Producer, Quality Controller and Translator on a Travel show in Al Ghad TV (Haymarket, London).

    My duties ranged from preproduction (research for content and locations of filming abroad, aiding in prep when it comes to the permits and paperwork needed, liaising with the tour guides before, during and after the shoots) to post production (quality control in the form of directing the editor with the rushes in order to obtain the best creative outcome every week, editing the work myself sometimes, translating into different languages (English, French and Arabic) and managing the social media platforms).

    As a Production Designer, Art Director and Food Stylist, I have been visually responsible for TV programs (Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Duets, The X-factor (M.E)..), TV series, a multitude of music video clips, short films, advertisements (Kipling, Samsung, Ice Watch…), photo shoots, food styling and print.
