Creative Direction

I use facilitation, coaching, data, and strategic planning to help sharpen different points of view into consensus and then work to help folks unleash their collective creativity together. I believe the best directors are servant-leaders first, and I'm a tireless advocate for the brilliant people whose creative work brings to life the stories we're working together to tell.

Multimedia Production

For over twenty years, I have been creating music, movies, illustrations, animations, software—and everything in between—to tell emotionally engaging stories. I thrive within constraints and seek out opportunities to create the things that others believe can't be done. I'm a self-taught expert at making mistakes, but I'm even better at learning from them.

Facilitation and Teaching

I have developed and delivered curriculum and presentations over a myriad of topics including screenwriting, motion picture production, film analysis, the creative process, software development, collaboration, project management, highly distributed workforces, and professional development. I'm still working on getting booked at my daughter's preschool career day though.
