About Me

I was born in Bern, Switzerland to father Boaz aka ‘Bosar’, a Jazz musician of Yemeni-Israeli descent and Swiss mother Verena, a humanitarian. I grew up both in Israel and Switzerland and came to the United States 17 years ago, with a big dream and a suitcase filled with over 200 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 transmuted over the years. There was always some form of creating going on, theatre, music, art, dance and writing. At  age 16 I took a leap and wrote and directed my first play.

Acting and writing are my ultimate teachers. Storytelling is my way of contributing to the unification of humanity by igniting empathy and compassion.

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.
