Focusing on meaningful connection and deep states of presence, her work supports and demands shifts in perspective and consciousness. She is one half of NEMA Productions, an experience design agency she runs with her soul sister and co-creator extraordinaire, Negin Sairafi.
Their previous work includes a four-day festival honouring the closure of iconic Toronto building, Honest Eds, the Spark!

In a previous life, she worked with global health agencies, including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and United Nations Foundation, across India and Africa leading research, policy, and national strategy work.
Since co-founding Reset, an organization that runs a tech-free summer camp for adults, in 2015, Hima has been a leader in building a community of creatives, entrepreneurs, activists and healers who are connected by their commitment to self-exploration and growth.
Reset has produced six weekend immersions for over 600 people, hosted an intensive residency program to nurture the next generation of cultural producers and experience designers, and invested in understanding what it means to shape braver and more inclusive spaces.
Hima is a hot-water enthusiast, exploratory artist, and spiritual seeker committed to playing her role in our collective liberation.
