In pursuit of his artistic aspirations, Los Angeles became the fertile ground where Safi refined his unique vision with each frame captured, ultimately leading to the exploration of the concept of Respect as The Universal Currency, shaping his perspective and fueling his desire to make a positive impact.

Amid the tumultuous times of the global pandemic, Safi made the decision to relocate to San Diego, seeking solace and connection with family amidst the uncertainty.
