Born and raised in Philadelphia, Ahmed received a Bachelor's Degree from Widener University in 2007. He started promoting parties and events to make money while struggling to gain employment. He then landed a job in non-profit Finance that he worked for 8 years. Frustrated with wanting to do more and unsatisfied with his lack of accomplishments, Ahmed fell into a very dark place. Fortunately, he finally found his passion for filming in his late 20's, quit his corporate job and became a full-time filmmaker.
Now Ahmed is a credited filmmaker, entrepreneur, and humanitarian.
