SELECTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Established New Media Center, Boosted Enrollment, Opened Lines of Communication. Univ Admin wanted a topnotch facility for New Media/Fine Arts but worried that a digital facility would be too costly despite market demands. I collaborated with influential leaders, led efforts to facilitate funding, partnerships, pedagogical philosophy, and infra-structural design for the $6 million facility, the best-of-its-kind in the Middle East. Tripled program enrollment in 2 years.

Successfully Communicated and Promoted Company Mission. A non-profit 501c3 organization needed key equipment to accomplish its goals. Formed relationships with manufacturers, resulting in donations of new equipment valued at $250K.

Created Documentary Series, Winning Awards. Realized major creative work in the Philippines, SE Asia, and Arabian Gulf by receiving two Ford Foundation research grants, a Fulbright grant, and others.
