LIFE AS STORY
When people ask me what I do, there is always a slight pause. I understand that the answer does not define me yet I also know that others need to identify my role in the context in which we have met. The short answer is: I am a creative. Add writer, communicator, designer, producer, or thinker to that word and you have described me. At some level, on any given day.
The fact is everyday is a little different and each project has its own story. I like it like that. I believe in creative self-expression and find that each person, product or place brings its own essence to the table. I like that too. It adds diversity to all life and that leads to a fuller expression within our collective consciousness.
On a more personal level I am a believer - in the planet and its people. I believe that life is meant to be full and joyful, people are inherently good, and that every living thing simply matters. This makes me a bit of a humanitarian but more importantly it makes me human. I blend creativity with an empathetic base and prefer projects that can change conversations and people that are open to creating a new story.
In short, curiosity has been my driver and creativity my passion. My story illustrates this well.
