Born and raised in Southern California, Nausheen was a shy child who found it easier to express herself visually than verbally. This lead to an early interest in drawing and painting which then transitioned from photography to filmmaking.
Nausheen received her Masters of Fine Arts in Cinematography from the world-renowned American Film Institute. Since then, she's worked on a variety of projects from narrative films, documentaries, and music videos. This varied exposure has provided her with a wide range of knowledge shooting in different genres, formats, and countries.
Nausheen's eclectic interests range from fine art, to superhero comic books, urban exploration, to Japanese anime, and of course the world around her. As a Pakistani-American Nausheen has straddled two cultures all her life. That often gives her a unique perspective as an insider and outsider at the same time. Her singular background and experiences come together to inspire her as a storyteller and help her create visuals that resonate across many cultural boundaries. Nausheen is based in Los Angeles and Karachi.
