I was born and raised in Los Angeles in the 90s. I’m a first generation American and have two moms. At USC’s School of Cinematic Arts I received a BA in Film & TV Production and was awarded the Jack Nicholson Scholarship in Directing. As a freelancer, I split my time between writing, directing & editing.

My name النجوم means “the stars” in arabic

Some things I love: swimming, eggs, live music, blue hour, East of Eden, hiking at sunset, the color orange, Led Zeppelin, singing+driving and Y Tu Mamá También.
