Current Location: Hyderabad, India

I’ve been to 18 out of 215 countries so far! That’s 8.37% of the world!
After a career in the music and live events industry where I traveled the United States with the biggest names in music entertainment, I decided to get back to my roots and dedicate myself to serving humanity.

As a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Kyrgyz Republic, I spent two years working with media outlets and journalists. My main project was the deployment of mobile technology into rural areas so that journalists in those areas could have a wider voice and better access to information.

Now living in Austin TX, I continue to support the next generation of journalists as the Executive Director of the Kloop Media Foundation, which supports the Kyrgyz NGO, Kloop Media and their journalism school in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I am also a part of the People Operations Team at Mutual Mobile.
