Creator, producer, writer, host, storyteller, social entrepreneur & communications specialist

I’m the Communications Architect at the Centre for Social Innovation, a social enterprise with a mission to catalyze social innovation around the world. I hold a Masters in Journalism from Columbia University, and a B.A. in Political Science, but truth be told, I’m much more of an experiential learner. I’ve worked as a researcher, policy analyst, and in investor relations. I am a bilingual globetrotter (English & French plus intermediate Spanish), a social entrepreneur—I started and ran a tourism company in a hot spot of the Middle East—and an obsessive inquirer.

Creator, producer, writer and co-host on UPLIFT, a documentary series taking people to the frontlines of social and environmental challenges to meet the entrepreneurs and innovators working on solutions.

Currently developing the Solutions Media Accelerator at CSI, a groundbreaking one-year program that will support the development of solutions and impact-driven journalists – journalists and storytellers that cover the responses to problems we face rather than just the problems, and/or who design journalism projects strategically for impact – and incubate promising media startups creating innovative tools and platforms for content to reach and engage diverse audiences.

I've worked and traveled throughout Latin America, the Middle East, and parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa.
