It all starts with a story.
These are the stories that explain who you are, what you do, and how you help your clients succeed in an ever-changing world. Telling the right story the right way is critical to connecting with the people that matter.

If you need to solve a creative problem, design a narrative strategy, name a product, or generate taglines, I’d love to help.

I don’t have fancy theories, formulas, or automated strategies for success. I do know how to show you with whom and how you should be connecting.
Whether delivering a keynote address, commencement speech, or prepared remarks, you never want to sound like you are speaking someone else’s words.
