Sami Moukaddem bio: www.samimoukaddem.com
Born in 1967 in Lebanon, I moved to Brazil shortly afterwards and returned four years later. I grew up mainly in Lebanon during civil war up until 1985 when I emigrated to Ireland. In 1994 I graduated from Trinity College Dublin with 3 Masters in Psychology. I worked as a Counselling psychologist mainly with adults who were sexually abused in childhood for four and a half years. Then with refugees, most of which were tortured in their country of origin. The last post before leaving the field of psychology in 2002 was working with nine inner city schools.
Since 2002 I have released 4 music CDs which I composed, produced and played original music. I also self published two novels, both launched by Ireland’s current president Mr. Michael D. Higgins,. The second book was also co-launched with Brian Keenan.
In 2009 I bought a video camera with no training in film making and embarked upon making a documentary on the Palestinian/Israel problem.
In 2012 I became involved in releasing music videos and documenting Azizi bin Habeebi.
