About me

From my time in advertising, events, art and tech, I have had the chance to delve into many creative pursuits with different hats. My personal and professional goal is to serve the problem of missed opportunities by designing and developing creative experiences—be it through design or activations. In a personal pursuit, I worked on conceptual activations and activism through ambient advertising for women's rights and specifically for Saudi women. I've assisted in the development of building the first female team to represent Saudi Arabia through a US charity tour after the lift of the ban on women driving with coverage by Teen Vogue, Harpaar's Bazaar, Fox News and amongst others. I continue to seek opportunities that serve communities through disruptive, informative and exciting forms of engagement—in the least marketing-y way possible.
