I bring fourteen years of experience in social justice advocacy and impactful research to non-profit organizations, top-tier universities, and B2C companies. I specialize in project management, initiative design, and leadership consultation, particularly for institutions that value public service and social equity. In the past, I have worked as an advisory council, product manager, creative director, and assistant professor, leading multiple teams at different institutions by incorporating a management style that replaces authority with compassionate collaboration.
I am also an interdisciplinary scholar and transmedia artist. My video game and interactive projects follow my research interest in racial justice, Middle East studies, and ethics of technology.
