Hi there! I'm a lecturer in Mass Communications at The University of Alabama. This year alone I've taught several hundred undergraduate students about emerging tech, media and entrepreneurship.
I've traveled all over the world (Brazil, Central America, tuck-a-way towns in Mexico) and worked in the Middle East for my externship in graduate school. My job was to raise growth-stage capital from the states for startups based in Israel. It was an interesting experience with plenty of stories to share. My Masters is from NYU, which had several campuses in the Middle East that served as "home base" for a while.
While I spend the majority of my time in Alabama to teach, I also spend time in Austin, Texas (my other "home base"). While in ATX, I enjoy attending tech events, attending lectures at my alma mater or biking around this beautiful city to enjoy festivals and the like. I also play in a gypsy jazz ensemble (also referred to as Jazz Manouche).
