Possessing nearly two decades of experience as a business owner, Afshan Lakha serves as a partner and co-owner of Lakha Investment Company, LLC, a commercial real estate investment firm in Bellevue, Washington. Beyond her work with the business, Afshan Lakha supports various charities and organizations in her area, including the Pacific Northwest Ballet (PNB).

One of the largest ballet companies in the United States, the PNB recently partnered with Pixvana to create a three-minute virtual reality (VR) film called Silent Resonance, directed by Scott Squires, the creative director and CTO of Pixvana, and choreographed by Price Suddarth, a PNB company dancer. Miles Pertl and Emma Love Suddarth, dancers from the PNB, are featured in the film.

After debuting at Point to the Stars, a PNB fundraising event, Silent Resonance is now available on Facebook 360 and YouTube 360. The film is the ballet company’s first VR experience and was designed to help new audiences explore the movement of dance.
