I am a social, business, and technical communicator based in the San Francisco Bay/Silicon Valley Area and involved in communications projects both here and around the world.
My professional interests include Web 2.0 and Social Media; Business Communication, Marketing & Branding; as well as user-focused communication and product design. I have named three Silicon Valley companies (including one that was acquired and another that is a major player in its space) and consult on social media presence, business plan and other documents, media design, and the like. I am also the founder for two Wikia wikis and a recovering Wikipediholic, remaining engaged with the Wikipedia and other wikis on issues where I can make a difference.
My social engagement includes human rights, social justice, as well as social and political issues of Muslim ("Islamic") communities in the West and "at home". A particular focus is both moderate/centrist traditions and alternatives, as well as engagement with Progressive and Left movements and groups.
An involvement and work in the field of new media in activism, of course, is a by-product of my two "lives" above.
I am available to work, help, discuss, and learn by engaging in exciting projects in all the areas mentioned above.
