My career has been about telling stories for the media and professional organizations to audiences of all sizes and interests. I've ghostwritten online content for executives, finished a novel, written poetry and provided insight to online readers. Sometimes I just tell stories to a friend over coffee. Every story I tell has a purpose.
Some of the stories I've told have been to fuel business, educate and inform. Others have been to make someone laugh or provide a little hope. Some of my favorite stories have bridged the gap between two seemingly disparate worlds: business and creativity. Where people are working for positive change-- in whatever medium in which they work-- stories flow freely and have the capacity to inspire new ways of thinking, being and behaving.
Stories can help you share where you've been, what you've learned and who you are. Being a storyteller is more than writing. It's diving deep into understanding the best ways to share what you know, ask questions that deserve answers, and make people's lives better.
Storytelling is part storyteller and part subject. As a professional, it's important to forge lifelong relationships that are productive and powerful, where trust can be built and important stories can be shared. As a creative, I treasure experiences more than stuff, and people more than anything.
As a person, I treat every story with respect, mastery and heart.
Ultimately, my work stems from one desire: to thoughtfully and intimately help organizations and individuals meaningfully connect with each other.
Here are some words people have used to describe me:
