I work with social justice organizations to create space for healing, equity, and opportunities for communities of color.

In 2008, I won the inaugural SONY South Asian Excellence Award for Social Service for my leadership fighting violence against women. Find out more about my consulting services.

I believe in the beauty of change. You can see my content and creative expertise in ā€œWhat Creates Change?,ā€ a storytelling film on ending violence.

During the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I directed Together We Are New York, a community-based multimedia poetry project to highlight the voices of Asian Americans. I co-led a creative expression workshop, Movement to Power, to confront gender violence and enable healing.
