I’m a photographer and photo editor interested in identity and immigration. Born to Syrian parents, I grew up in suburban Ohio. My hometown of Canton seemingly straddles disparate cultures of the Midwest and the Middle East, but my family and the Arab community there is wholly American. My work focuses on these kinds of complex relationships.
I’m currently a digital photo editor at National Geographic, living in Washington D.C. Prior to that, I worked at NPR and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and graduated from Kent State University in 2017.
