A full service business development studio
focused on people and the planet's needs.
I am a business development professional and social change artist. I live at the intersection of art, technology and social change.
I work internationally with social enterprises big and small (ME, USA, EU, India) to develop sustainable solutions to local and global challenges.
My background is in social science and international development. By craft, I am a researcher, writer, front end developer and UI/UX designer.
I am a lifelong learner, problem-solver and reflector. As a part of my daily social-artistic practice, I keep a journal, converse with strangers and write creatively.
My ideal clients are visionary entrepreneurs or teams during the start-up phase of their new products, projects, companies or organizations.
