Who Am I?

Actor

The earliest memory I have is watching “The Gladiator” with my grandma and my uncle. The emotional rollercoaster I experienced was unforgettable, and I went on to re-watch the film countless times.

Five-year-old me already knew that I wanted to evoke emotions in people, the way they were evoked in me every single time I saw the film. This became the base of my passion for Acting. Acting is sharing humanity back to itself, and that is what I do.

I was in the Oscar-Winning Short, The Neighbor’s Window. The movie tells the story of a middle-aged woman with small children whose life is shaken up when two free-spirited, twenty-somethings move in across the street.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned from the collaboration with the Academy Award Winning Director is this: The more you leave your comfort zone, the luckier you become.

When listening to “The Weeknd” album in March, I thought of ways of sharing my creative work to people. Instagram came to my mind at first, a platform where a lot of graphic designers, photographers and painters reveal their art.

However, uploading a screenshot of a Screenplay on a platform full of visual content was not a good idea. So, I decided to create my version of a “Music Album” and instead of songs, it would include short Screenplays and their analyses. This was the birth of The Book, Bipolar. for more details go here.

Screenwriter

Fade In

I wrote my first screenplay at the age of 13 and, unlike acting, I never thought that this would become an inseparable part of me.

We are all storytellers. From cavemen painting their hunting processes on the walls to Hollywood spending $200 million on a blockbuster. The truth is that the only person who looks at the blank page is a Screenwriter. It all starts from him/her.
