A Little About Myself.

Having finished my fourth year at Queen’s University, I'm a Palestinian-Canadian student of Political Studies.

Outside of school, I'm a writer, initially self-publishing my debut novel at the age of twelve. Now twenty-one, I continue to work on creative projects in a variety of mediums, most notably on my upcoming novel.

Aside from writing fiction, I have delved into other fields like short film production (Words Hurt, Words Heal) and the world of podcasting (The BS Podcast, Alohomora!). I'm particularly interested in addressing issues around inequality and the climate crisis as it relates to urban planning, design, and transport.

What I Do.


I’m always doing something new, working on some random project that will most likely never see the light of day. I have a need to make things and venture into the unknown, like the time(s) I tried podcasting, when I created my very own extensive Harry Potter fan site, or that one time I worked for months trying to build a search engine (yes, really). Some, however, have managed to sneak out into the world. Below are just some of the things I’ve done – some good, some bad (remember I was twelve).

The Ewald Series

A series of novels following the adventures of Ewald Ellington through new mythical lands beyond the realm of his imagination.

Design Work

A number of creative design projects from the cover for a Canadian language dictionary to branding for real and fictional political campaigns.

Politicus Article

An academic article outlining Section 35 of the Canadian Constitution and the impediment it poses to the decolonization of Indigenous rights.

The BS Podcast

A conversation between brother and sister.

Words Hurt, Words Heal

A short film following a vicious bullying campaign and the tragic events in its aftermath.


Queen’s Model Parliament

A model session of the Canadian House of Commons in which I sat as a Member of Parliament and delivered a speech.

Advice from Authors

Interviews with award-winning Canadian authors Kenneth Oppel and Kevin Sylvester.

Alohomora! Podcast

An episode of Alohomora! that I guest-hosted to discuss Chapter 37 of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
