What did you do before you were a Miner?

Prior to Media Minefield, I was in Abu Dhabi where I worked at a global communications advisory firm and did freelance work with social enterprises and a local media outlet. I worked on client teams for Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi and more.

If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be?

Anywhere in Europe. Scotland, Italy and the Netherlands are my favorites there.

What do you do for fun?

I love to paint. I’m currently working on an oil painting of Lake Harriet. I also love to travel, read, walk around the lakes and spend time with my family and friends.

What are your favorite quotes?

+ “She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails.” – Elizabeth Edwards

+ “Comparison is the thief of joy.” – Christina Najjar

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one food, what would it be?

Reese’s peanut butter trees. They’re way better than the normal cups.
