Storyteller, Brand Strategist, Project Manager

A lifelong storyteller and military veteran, I transitioned from entertaining other soldiers in the barracks to comedy club audiences and eventually potential customers. I studied film, screenwriting and visual storytelling in New York City with teachers that include Vojtěch Jasný, Milton Glaser, Valentina Caniglia, Gail Anderson and James C. Strouse. I even spent two tough years educating overcrowded classrooms in NYC's under served communities. There's no tougher audience than 50+ streetwise teenage New Yorkers. 

Our ancestors gathered around campfires, today we have online and offline experiences shaping modern storytelling. As a trans-media storyteller I focus my efforts on engaging audiences where they are with consistent and authentic messaging. Career supported by military honors, a BFA from The School of Visual Arts' competitive Advertising/Design program and an MFA in Creative Writing from National University.
