Tell us a little about yourself:
I’m a performing artist, comedian and arts professor. I co-founded Dubomedy Arts and the Clowns Who Care Project alongside my now husband Ali Al Sayed.

When did you move to Dubai and what brought you here:

Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a new Dubaian transplanted from New York City. I live in TECOM and work in Media City and I’m looking forward to traveling around the region as much as I can.

When did you move to Dubai and what brought you here:
I moved to Dubai in November 2013 which already seems like a long time ago now. I came here to work with a former grad school classmate of mine who has opened a unique center in Media City called the Hissah Enrichment Center. We’re both psychologists with different specialties. She mostly works with families and children and I mostly work with professionals, students thinking about careers and youth leaders. If you’re looking for a great place to talk through things I highly recommend it. It’s a peaceful place. Check us out at hissahec.com. Read more
