Born in Yangon Myanmar, in 1994. Since 2010, I have started making films by attending several workshops in Yangon, right after I graduated from high school. Following years, I attended several academic institutions, self-studied photography and set my path as a musician for 2 years. Instead of continuing my music career, in 2015, I attended 1-year filmmaking diploma course in New York Film Academy, United States in aspiration of becoming a director. During my studies, I wrote and directed 8 short films in total and also worked as different filmmaking roles in my classmates projects. For the thesis project, I wrote, directed, edited and produced my short film “My Lover Never Came”. Currently, I am working on the post-production of my next short film "From Me/ To Me.
As a freelancer, I work as a film set and an event photographer.
