I Tell Stories.

Of people, places, and things.

My Mission.

Is to deliver intelligent, engaging content through original research and sense-making to create compelling stories, actionable strategies, and enjoyable products, services, and experiences for any platform.

The Thread.

That binds together three distinctive careers is story, used to inform, inspire, and provide people a better understanding of the world around them — and the people, places, and things in it.

Distinctive Careers.

JOURNALISM | WRITING

Knowing how to get to information, how to get information out of people they didn’t know they had, making sense of it, and turning it into accurate, informative, and engaging content is what I do.

Media & Outlets

I’ve worked for: The Dallas Times Herald, The Bradenton Herald (Fla.), and The State (S.C.). I’ve contributed to: The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel (Fla.), The Hartford Courant (Conn.), Sports Illustrated, among others, and radio and television outlets in Texas. Digital outlets include: last100.com and readwriteweb.com, websites and blogs for SEO clients (in Texas, Alabama, Georgia, New York).

RESEARCH | DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

I blend investigative journalism with ethnography, heuristics, design thinking, and an insatiable desire to kick over rocks in search of true discovery to better understand people, places, and things.

Clients and Projects

Company: Ignition, Inc.. Clients: Texas Instruments, RadioShack, The Dallas Morning News, Porter-Cable, Fossil, Leapfrog, Alcatel, others. Industries: mobile, mobile computing, computing, entertainment, media, Do It Yourself, education, fashion, communications, B2B, and others.

UNIVERSITY | TEACHING

Teaching isn’t limited to the classroom. I use story, research, sense-making, design thinking, and frame-working to teach, inform, and educate readers, diverse team members, clients, stake-holders, constituents, end-users, customers, and — oh,  yeah — students. Success is easier to obtain when everybody is on the same page.

The University of Texas at Dallas

Taught classes in the Arts & Technology and Emerging Media & Communications programs. Students included undergraduates and graduates. Classes included Business and the Digital Arts, Interactive Design, Introduction to Arts & Technology, Content Development for New Media. Also teamed with the Dallas Museum of Art to host and moderate ArtBytes, a monthly discussion on the intersection of art and technology.
