About - Digital storytelling, writer, multimedia guru. World traveler, equal parts adventurer and homebody, mom.
It all started when I read a book about India to prepare for a trip to Mexico.
I was 11, and my church youth group had organized a mission trip to Juarez. For “homework” we had to read a book about Mother Theresa. To this girl from West Texas, that combination was magic. In an instant, the whole world had been opened up to me. I developed a deep love of culture and travel.
I am especially fascinated by the distinct ways that people classify and represent their experiences- whether for creative purposes or to have their voices heard.
Throughout most of my life I’ve satisfied this curiosity with a career in advocacy, international development and communications.
I tell stories (both mine and others’) through research, writing, photography, video and web production.
I also love teaching all these things- I’ve worked with nonprofit organizations in Washington DC and around the world, coaching them on integrating new media tools into their communication and advocacy strategies.
“If a nation loses its storytellers, it loses its childhood.”
