Muhammad was born and raised in Sudan.

He is a cyclist, an engineer, a graphic designer and a traveller. He is studying MSc Sustainable Energy Systems at The University of Edinburgh and passionate about providing energy access to those who lack it.

He is a social activist and loves to create short films; he is one of the co-founders of "Ne7na Group", in Sudan, which aims to portrait main issues in Sudan (racism, sexism, violence, etc.) and to raise awareness about them through short films and sketches.

Also, he loves to walk, listen to music, smile, and mostly, to discuss everything.
