My Story

  • Experience in markets
  • Love of story
  • Personal background
  • Educational Background
  • How is economics important?
  • How I ended up where I am.

Business. Creativity. Mindset. Storytelling.

My business background allows me to use video production to discover and tell the stories of great businesses. My knowledge of SEO, social media, and website design allows me to better understand the channels for that story and tell it in different ways.  Continually honing mindset improves the process and flow for business and marketing.  I like lasers and wanted to see if you were paying attention.

What I do really well.

I have a passion for business, film, and the web. My love of learning has fostered my love of educating people though and about those medium. In the end, our entire lives are ruled by stories: How we listen to stories, how we tell stories and the stories we tell ourselves.
