I’m most excited to work on projects that… use storytelling to help translate dense issues and inspire a broad audience.

I’m looking for partners that can help me… scale successful work and take these creative projects to the next level.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… throughout the process of creating and launching the podcast “Things That Go Boom.”

Innovations in my field I’m most excited to work on… involve storytelling using a variety of tools: writing, photography, art, data visualization, and audio, to name a few.
