I am a freelance multimedia documentarian and social enterprise co-founder, based between the US and the Middle East.
In 2011, I moved from Baltimore, Maryland to Amman, Jordan to pursue a Fulbright research fellowship (2011-12). Until 2015, I continued to work and live between Amman and Jerash as a social enterprise co-founder, and a non-profit consultant. I worked with several women entrepreneurs in Jordan in order to document their stories, and empower other women entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams of owning a business. In the process, I co-founded a social enterprise, Sitti.
This was also the beginning of my career in multimedia journalism and documentary storytelling.
I've produced content for several radio/podcast outlets, including the Middle East podcast Kerning Cultures, Monocle24, Out There and NPR's Weekend Edition. I've also written and photographed for the Bucks County Herald, as well as the MENA entrepreneurship news platform, Wamda.
I'm available for freelance assignments in Baltimore, DC and the greater MENA region.
