Avi is a proven creative leader who loves the work as much as she loves the people. Global in every sense, she believes in work that transcends language and that creativity is a behavior changer and business driver. She’s been lucky to learn from, partner with and mentor some of the best minds and kindest hearts in the industry and she’s learned that craft is truly the difference between 'ok' and 'wow'. 
Avi loves to play with technology, tell stories, build teams, solve problems, build brands, fix broken things and forge strong relationships along the way. 
She’s had the pleasure of changing the hearts and minds of America about its biggest retailer, turning protest art into voting booths and bringing separated loved ones together through haptic technology that allowed them to hug remotely. 
Most recently she helped cats find forever homes on a gaming platform, de-stigmatized bladder leaks and showcased the capability of an incredibly innovative vehicle.


She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two kids and cats.
