About Me

I was born in Bern, Switzerland to father Boaz aka ‘Bosar’, a Jazz musician of Yemeni-Israeli descent and Swiss mother, Verena. I grew up both in Israel and Switzerland and came to the United States 18 years ago, with a big dream and a suitcase filled with R&B CDs.

As a child growing up, my parents placed a strong emphasis on the creative arts, a focus that has only evolved and grown over the years. There was always some form of creating going on: theatre, music, art, dance, writing. At  age 16, I took a leap and wrote, produced  and directed my first play.

 

Storytelling is more than entertainment, it's a conduit to challenge our perception of the world around us. As creators we have a responsibility to elevate and expand the consciousness of humanity by igniting empathy and compassion. I am committed to that.

UPDATE:

  • I am currently developing a 6-episode limited series based on true events. A story about my great grandmother, widowed at the young age of 22, forced to save her seven children from persecution in 1930’s Yemen.

  • I've been diligently studying ASL and about Deaf Culture and I am committed to being an ally to the Deaf community in our industry. More to come.

  • NYT coverage of our wedding!
