ARTHUR’s BIO
I studied in the graduate film production program at the University of Southern California’s School Of Cinematic Arts, where I was an Annenberg Fellow. Prior to that I obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at MIT and worked for 4 years in the semiconductor industry. Born in my mother’s Ukraine, raised in my father’s Ghana, and now living in the United States, I love to explore characters defined by multiple worlds. I have worked on fiction and documentary shorts currently playing at film festivals across the world. Some of these include WHAT TO BRING TO AMERICA (2010, Producer), REFUGE (2010, Writer/Director), and COLOR BLIND (2011, Editor). I currently live in Boston, MA, where I combine my passion for engineering in my day job with my love for filmmaking on two documentaries exploring Africa and Africans in a globalized, technological age:  ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY and THEY VENTURED HOME.
