I TELL YOUR STORIES

I'm a storyteller who takes complex, abstract and new ideas and creates interactions and visuals that are educational, enlightening and delightful.

If you ask my colleagues, they'll tell you that I'm an illustrator, a painter, a web designer, an animator, an 'idea guy', or perhaps something else entirely. Its true, I've been trained in and absolutely love visual arts. However, I'm a storyteller at heart, and all of these things I've done orbit about the concept of telling stories. My story. Their story. Your story.

I am always on the lookout for engaging opportunities to create outstanding audience experiences. I believe that stories are the best way to:

- Impart understanding.
- Share mindset.
- Convey value.
- Reveal motivation.
- Create bonds.

HISTORY

Both my personal life and my extensive career are full to the brim with communication discovery; visual storytelling through interface design, illustration, and animation; audio communication via podcasting and public speaking; even some writing and photography. I love to find the story in something, and then explore the best way to engage those who need it.

In addition, I have a deep history working as part of development teams, but am dependable and happy working on solo projects.
