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). Over the next several years in Jordan I worked as an international non-profit consultant, and co-founded a social enterprise. In that time, I collaborated with several Jordanian women entrepreneurs to document their stories as a tool for empowering other Arab women in their pursuit of owning their own businesses.
I currently produce content for several radio/multimedia news and storytelling outlets, including the Middle East podcast Kerning Cultures, Monocle24, News Deeply, 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.
