It’s never been easier for people to create a name and a fanbase to support their creativity. From a kid who writes a smash song on her acoustic guitar, to a guy broadcasting a revolution with his phone, whether it’s in 140 characters or expressed through text and doodles on top of a photo, people today are doing one thing in lots of places – they’re telling stories.
I’ve been telling stories my whole life. I wrote my first short story at age 4, and started publishing a family newsletter at 13. I was the editor of my college newspaper, and by 20 I was a music journalist and filmmaker, telling stories in video and emerging social media. I’ve been a tour manager, artist developer, project manager, creative director, marketing strategist, and podcaster. I’ve filmed the President, made movies for Harley Davidson, been big on YouTube and toured all around the world with rock stars. And all the while, I was telling a story. Sometimes that story was my own, but most of the time I was helping someone else tell their story, in as many places and to as many people as possible.
Let’s tell your story together.
