I am an entrepreneur with expertise in communications. I raise the profile of global issues with a focus on women's rights, countering terrorism and international justice.
I began my career in advertising by founding StudioE9, an independent digital laboratory servicing global advertising agencies in 2004. StudioE9 introduced leading international brands, like Sony Ericsson, into the North American market.
In 2013, I co-founded Uncommon Union to build strategic partnerships and develop multimedia communications that bring together media companies, governments, businesses, celebrities, activists and NGO’s to help facilitate the emergence of new, underreported narratives.
Ancillary to this, I am a founding member of UNODC Goodwill Ambassador Nadia Murad's Nadia's Initiative, write on the subject of women’s empowerment and serve on the board of Roya Mahboob’s Digital Citizen Fund.
I studied Anthropology and Art History at Barnard College, Columbia University and Design at Parson School of Design in New York City.
