Positions

Business Lead
Activista
United States
December 2018 - Present (1 year 8 months)
Activista is a sister company of Anomaly, headquartered out of LA, but working on global initiatives.

Business Lead (Los Angeles)
Venice, United States
June 2018 - December 2018 (6 months)
We recently launched Activista (part of the Anomaly Group) through #SameTeamJersey - an initiative for The United Nations Free & Equal Campaign - uniting people all over the world for one moment in time.... Pride x The Soccer World Cup.

There are still 70+ countries in the world where being gay is illegal or dangerous. So, standing with the LGBTQ community and showing we all belong to the same team, we created six jerseys using the strips of the national teams playing in the World Cup.

The limited edition commemorative shirts travelled the world, finally being sold at auction to raise money for The United Nations Free & Equal Campaign.
