About Me

I am passionate about Gender Equality and helping people achieve their potential. Therefore, I started Safecity, a crowdmap for sexual violence in public spaces and Women Speakers, a crowdmap to list women experts.
My organisations Red Dot Foundation Global (USA) and Red Dot Foundation manage various online and offline campaigns to educate people on the issue of sexual violence and its prevention. We use crowdsourced data from Safecity to help us design local interventions with partners and institutional bodies.
Our aim is to make public spaces safer for all, especially women and girls, through crowdsourced data, community engagement and institutional accountability.
I am a former aviation executive with almost 20 years of corporate experience and now have been in the development sector for over 5 years. My vast experience has enabled me to run my organisations efficiently and effectively. We have been recognised globally as a thought leader.

My Vision

For true gender equality, there must be a level playing field to access opportunities and achieve one's potential. We need to be safe.


Collaborations, partnerships and goodwill.


I can help mentor and coach you from a business and personal perspective.
