I had the pleasure to work and connect with Uma during a magical time at the Yale World Fellows Program (2013-2014), where she brought her innate creativity, an ability to push boundaries in a traditional environment, and technical wizardry in moving not only the program but its participants to a greater level of sophistication and relevance.  Uma is able to translate opaque ideas into beautiful and accessible mediums so that you are part of the experience.  Her work showcases her philosophy on bringing light to stories for diverse audiences...she is a gifted storyteller and one to have - always - in your corner.
