what i do.

I am always looking for new ways to tell stories about the world around us and understand how to communicate most effectively.

I tell stories across multiple mediums in my professional work, including writing, document design, web design, and presentation. In addition to telling my own stories, I like to understand what makes the stories told by others work well (or not so well). I am always seeking answers about why and how language works the way it does to form connection, meaning, and joy through communication.
