About

I’m a cartoonist and illustrator living in Lebanon. My work in comics has been featured primarily in the Lebanese anthology magazine Samandal (2008-Present), with more recent titles including Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (2017), and The Fifth Column: Homecoming, which was awarded the Mahmoud Kahil Award in the Best Graphic Narrative category (2016). My comics have also been exhibited at the Lucca Comics and Games festival (2010), at CairoComix (2016), and at the Angouleme Comics Festival (2017).

Being a fan of science fiction and horror, the stories I write often use those genres to deal with personal and local social concerns. The project I’m working on now is a graphic novel titled Enigma, which is centered on a sixteen-year-old whose passion for outer space guides her plan to escape Lebanon’s gravitational pull and study rocket science abroad.
