I'm proud to be a part of Pop Culture Collaborative/Noor Theatre's Artists Advancing Cultural Change cohort, along with fellow actor/screenwriter Arian Moayed (Succession) and screenwriter/director Mike Mosallam (Breaking Fast). We'll each be writing works that reflect issues in contemporary American culture, through our own unique Middle Eastern lenses.
