For years, I contributed weekly stories to The International New York Times about the Middle East on business, culture, education, healthcare, and travel (no politics!). I had roles as deputy editor of VIVA Magazine and Editor of Dubai Magazine, official title of the Dubai Department of Tourism. I also spent six years as editor-in-chief at Google MENA.

I have also freelanced for other elite media outlets, including Stylist Arabia, The Financial Times, Fortune, Rolling Stone, Savoir Flair, and CNN Travel.


Corporate work has included content for websites, brochures, proposals, and internal communications.  Clients have included the Abu Dhabi Culture and Tourism Authority, HSBC, Flip Media, and TBWA\Raad.
