From working at harveys as a teenager to now working for a big name like Shopify, Omran uses his life experiences to put out impactful and intentional messaging through creative media. One of Omran's life motto's is that "The deadliest creature is the silent one" whereby he means that sometimes you just need to be quiet, do what you need to do, and attack/come out when you need to.
