I was born in Youssoufia, a small town in Morocco just south of Marrakesh. I am the sixth of eight children and have been fascinated by the art of painting since I was a child. I participated in several painting competitions in grade school and some of my early work still graces the halls of Kachkat, my old high school. After graduating from the University of Moscow with an engineering degree in computer science, I returned to Morocco and began working for Hewlett Packard.
 
I moved to the US in 2005 and am proud to say that I became a US citizen in 2010. While my full-time job is with GXS Corporation in Gaithersburg, Maryland as an IT manager, I continue to pursue my passion for art in my spare time.
 
I enjoy painting abstract art, landscapes and cityscapes and use acrylic on canvas. My work reflects the cultures and colors of the three continents where I've lived and often has a Moroccan influence.
 
I currently reside in northeast Washington, DC near the H Street/Atlas District.
