how we tell our stories

Crafting stories exploring the human experience is crucial in understanding and connecting to our complex world; and no two stories are alike. The global pandemic has impacted us in ways we could never have imagined. One indisputable fact is that we need stories to identify with one another - now more than ever. 

 

Stories connect to inspire and developing new thought provoking tools that enable audiences think differently. Storytelling stimulates curiosity, breaks down complex ideas for understanding, reveals unseen perspectives, reveals hidden histories, and expands spaces for activating change. Strategic design narratives communicates vision, why you create and what makes you unique. My work seeks to tell the multiphonic stories of artists, designers, changemakers and space changers as they move beyond the boundaries of disciplines and disrupt dominant narratives to shape and shift the future.
