For the past two and a half years I have been living in working in Saudi Arabia as an event producer for King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (one of the only universities in the kingdom that allow men and women to study and work together). My job was to coordinate three programs a year for the Enrichment Office in the Spring, Fall and our signature program, Winter Enrichment Program. We coordinated keynote lectures, musical performances, lectures, field trips and art exhibitions.

We had eight weeks holiday in Saudi, which provided me ample time to escape the rather oppressive heat and culture and so I was able to tick some countries off my "must see" list.

Prior to this I was coordinating events for a non-partisan think tank in Washington, D.C. for the Aspen Global Leadership Network, a program under the Aspen Institute. We had one signature event in Aspen, the Aspen Action Forum, as well as smaller signature events around the globe.

I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Arts Management from a small liberal art school in Cambridge, Massachusetts named Lesley University in 2012. I am a diehard Boston sports team fan.
