Speaker Bios:

Maya Zuckerman is Founder of TransmediaSF – an event and media agency, Expert-In-Residence for BRaVe Ventures, and marketing manager of Keyframe-Entertainment – a Transformational Media Network that bridges Underground Electronic Music and mainstream culture. She is also developing the Science Fiction franchise Em’s Theory. Maya is an emerging media and technology aficionado. She brings a wealth of experience from different media silos: visual effects, film, production, video games, tech startups, product management, and brand narratives. Her passion revolves around mainstream cross-platform media and transformational media as a vehicle in creating change on a global scale.

Rucha Chitnis is a San Francisco-based photojournalist and writer, whose stories highlight the power, dignity and counter narratives of women and grassroots movements. Her photo essays explore how women of color, indigenous peoples and farmers are reclaiming their stories, debunking the dominant narrative and shaping their future and destiny by promoting women’s and indigenous rights, racial justice and people-centered resiliency efforts. You can read her published stories and photo essays here: A Woman’s Lens. Follow her on Twitter:@RuchaChitnis
