About me

My name is Leroy Magai, but most people know me as Yorel Cairo. I am a film maker and photographer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I love to search and find that precise angle to tell a story. Last year I won the Pioneers Award with my short movie "Baker Boyz" at the Night of the Almeerse Film Festival. I wrote and directed this movie. I am also a creative writer. Published a poetry book and a short stories book. Being healthy is important to me. You can find me in the gym at least 3 times a week. Keep the body healthy and the mind sharp. -Creating is a way of life in which you find your true self-
