Tarik Kanafani was born in Washington D.C. but grew up around the world, having spent many years in the Middle East and North Africa where he gained life experiences and perspectives that he values today in his approach to the job. With a love for TV, film and acting, he immediately pursued a career as a representative shortly after high school. Tarik then began working for two Hollywood veteran agents, who helped to launch the careers of many movie stars before moving on to the William Morris Agency (and eventually through the transition to WME) where he spent 5 years. To gain the experience of the actor’s perspective, Tarik took a one year hiatus from WME to work on the production of a large movie franchise where he studied the ins and outs of a film set/production. Tarik has been at Silver Lining Entertainment since it’s inception in 2014.
