Karim fell in love with the filmmaking craft while vacationing in the US.
He took an intensive acting course and was introduced to various Arab-American filmmakers, such as the late Mostafa Akkad who produced the Halloween horror series in order to raise money for Arab and Islamic-themed films like Omar Al-Mokhtar and Al-Ressala.
His starring role in the romantic comedy Facebook Romance, playing a young man who moves to Jordan following the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, landed Karim a Best Actor Award at the Monaco Film Festival.
The success of this film and his TV roles in Egypt drove Karim to accept an offer from MBC Group to become the presenter of the popular talent show The Voice in 2012.
