my storyline

For over 30 years I've worked with children + adults mixing elements of theatre, advanced technologies, and design to connect people with ideas for art + business.

Most recently, I worked with some of the best minds in mobile app design, branding, and messaging to support 100s of entrepreneurs launching new ventures.

In 2016, using my background in digital storytelling, theatre performance, and branding, I created Storylines to help people tell stories in new and exciting ways. In doing so, I discovered wonderful tools for personal and professional development— through stories and the expressive arts. 

Part creativity coach, part executive coach, part narrative therapist, I help people of all ages and all walks of life quickly break through creative blocks, gain massive confidence, and make profound connections in their lives.   

Last year, I had the honor of bringing my approach to Nairobi, Kenya to participate in The 4th Annual JENGA Conference for The East African Network on Global Mental Health to discuss the intrinsic therapeutic value of storytelling.

The results were inspiring and provocative; suggesting in no trivial terms how storytelling can profoundly impact your life — and, the lives of others.
