Compelling and meaningful storytelling is everything. Everyday our lives are touched by brands, products, services, and platforms; these experiences are defined by the strategic thinking behind them. Over the past five years I have had the pleasure of using storytelling and brand strategy to give authentic, ownable voices to a variety of brands. A beautifully told story can secure funding for a budding startup, resurrect a struggling brand, or single-handedly drive the development of a groundbreaking technology. I believe the most powerful strategy work is born from empathy, curiosity, optimism, and an insatiable, relentless joie de vivre.
