Firas joined AAE in December 2020, after moving back to North Carolina to be closer to family. He spent three years on the west coast, living in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, while working at a high-profile talent agency. Firas has a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he double majored in Political Science and Film. He is passionate about social justice topics and the workings of the entertainment industry. His past experience has taught him how to communicate with peers as well as high-profile clients. The high-stakes environment allowed him to develop multi-tasking, conflict resolution, and team building skills. Firas is looking forward to "taking the broad entertainment industry foundation I've built and applying it to a more specific sector of the business" at AAE. In his free time, he likes to meditate, watch and play sports, and spend time with family and friends.
