I’m a storyteller, and it’s my strongly held belief that in any content, it’s necessary to find the narrative. As an audience, regardless of medium, we’re hard-wired to search for it in everything we consume. As a writer and editor who has traveled the world, writing for different publications and clients, I'm ultimately an expert at finding that narrative and communicating it to the right audience.
