He is an actor, director, producer, and a fine artist whose designs and large-scale murals include the Lebron James Mural and Michael Jordan Mural on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, the Steve Harvey mural at NBCUniversal Studios, and other noticable artworks.

HASHIM began his career after attending Emerson College in the early 2000s. He was a radio personality for Radio Disney and later toured as himself for the Disney Cruise Lines. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2016, HASHIM has honed his acting craft and has appeared on This is Us (2018), Forever (2018) and a few episodes of Splitting Up Together (2018).

HASHIM brings a warm and quirky humor to his acting techniques. His visuals are eye-catching and daringly innovative.
