Instructor Background

My Name is Mahmoud Tomoum,

7 years ago while I was studying at my university I started creating videos as an underwater videographer during summer break, I have to say I feel in love with that. it connected me to my passion of creating art and animations as a whole. After I finished university I became a videographer at a marketing company. At that time, I knew that my passion in life and work life are combined. Currently I'm happy to say that I'm still working on what I love and in a greater scale at a production level.
