Interviewing farmers in Puntland, Somalia 2015.

My day job is as a project manager of media production for the One Earth Future Foundation based in Broomfield, Colorado, USA. I produce original multimedia content on maritime piracy, economic development in Somalia, and the possibility of world peace.

Prior to working with OEF, I developed online public relations initiatives for clients like USAID’s Center for International Disaster Information and Rotary Club International. I’ve contributed to programming featured on MTV Networks and Public Broadcasting in the United States and abroad.

I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Uganda and as an AmeriCorps disaster responder with the American Red Cross of Greater New York.

I earned a Master’s degree in International and Intercultural Communication from the University of Denver, a Bachelor’s degree in Moving Image Arts from the College of Santa Fe, and I’m a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

I’ve been featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal for waterboarding myself and recognized by the late film critic, Roger Ebert’s The Wise list on Twitter.
