Director Biography - Ahmed Lindsay

Ahmed “Magnum Med“ Lindsay (born January 29, 1985) is a director, writer, editor, producer, content creator, and whatever he needs to be. Originally from Philadelphia, Ahmed found his passion for creating and filming after years of failing at other endeavors. Always had a huge imagination since childhood but never knew how to explore it constructively or positively. During a time where Ahmed was going through a major change in life, mentally and spiritually, he was convinced to pick up a camera. From there Ahmed did what he does best and taught himself how to become a filmmaker. Ahmed now in his late 20's had so much to say but not enough confidence to say it. But with the camera and the techniques of storytelling, he had found his tool to get out all his thoughts and tell the stories he always wanted to know. Ahmed figured out why movies made him feel certain ways and wanted to do the same with his projects, all in the hope to inspire, educate, and motivate people. Unfortunately with a lack of help in specific areas like writing, producing, editing, Ahmed taught himself how to do it all even the cinematography. Now with years of experience and credits, Ahmed is working on bigger projects that he is writing, producing, and directing!
