Tell better stories.

ask better questions.


creative + production

VIDEO - my favorite medium and one where I do the most work. The combination of sound & imagery to create the right feeling, message and story is a fulfilling process. So many great ways to use video these days. “Micro-content” is what I’m most interested in currently.

#Story & #Attention

“story-tell.” what you have to do to make us care about your thing.

”attention.” what you have to have to tell us about your thing.

both are more valuable and harder to do these days.

For me the process starts with finding what is emotional about a “thing.” And that always starts with writing about it. From there, the ideas, words and imagery reveal themselves.
