(He/Him)
I'm a director, deviser, and writer.
After growing up in Vienna, to Turkish-Canadian parents, I now live in London, working on various projects in film & theatre. I am drawn to stories and ideas that are fresh, nuanced, and challenging.

Currently I'm most interested in stories made about, and with, the Jewish and Middle Eastern diaspora, as well as work that deals with the climate crisis.

I am currently developing my BOLD Playwrights winning play 'A Tree Called Max' as well as writing a play about mushrooms and disappearing towns, on commission from Boundless Theatre.
