  • Meesha Ahmad

    Chief Humor Officer

    At a year old, she's already a pro at the theory of humor. She has an advanced degree in shape-sorting and is pursuing a second degree in linguistics (currently experimenting with an indecipherable language). When she's not helping with DSR's content marketing, she's probably breaking something. In her free time, she enjoys being a cheese connoisseur.
