Telling Your Story
Telling Your Story
Moving your message to those who need to hear it can be challenging. I help individuals and organizations identify the big idea behind their business or nonprofit – who they are at their core, what others can expect from them, and even how the world would be different if they didn't exist. From there, we craft communications that best reflect their unique identity. We aim to create a pull, not a push – an emotional resonance born of authenticity and clarity.
Writing and Editing
Writing and Editing
Words are my first love. Whether developing a creative treatment, writing a documentary script, tackling a grant, fashioning a compelling press release or feature story – or providing skillful editing of author manuscripts – my goal is to infuse stories with clarity and lasting impact. And when I'm not working with clients, I write essays, creative nonfiction, and even a bit of poetry of my own.
Teaching
Teaching
At workshops, conferences and in academic settings, I teach documentary filmmaking, the art of the video interview, print and web journalism, and brand communications. I also consult with documentary filmmakers at every stage of production as they consider style, structure, and story. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is empowering young people to find their voices using video storytelling skills.
Speaking
Speaking
The passion of an award-winning journalist, university lecturer and documentary filmmaker can add dimension to a conference or public event. As a keynote speaker and panelist, I bring a wealth of experience and knowledge on themes explored in my films (often gender and racial equality), and have addressed a variety of topics ranging from independent film production to the changing media landscape to careers in film and television.
