I have more than fourteen years of nonprofit experience encompass expertise ranging from political communications and legislative advocacy to media relations. A wide range of media outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and NPR have sought my opinion.
I have been published in the Boston Globe and the Detroit Free Press. Additionally, I authored CAIR’s 2008 and 2009 “Status of Muslim Civil Rights in the United States” reports.
I played a role in advocacy campaigns drawing concessions from corporate giants such as Burger King and Bell Helicopter-Boeing.
The Philadelphia Inquirer named a blog focused on the 2005-2006 reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT ACT I maintained a “web winner.” In 2006, I was part of a delegation that went to Baghdad, Iraq to appeal for the release of a kidnapped American journalist.
I have conducted dozens of leadership, advocacy and media training across the United States, including speaking to audiences at NASA and the U.S. National War College.
