Creating and sharing stories differentiates us from every species on the planet — and they can differentiate your business, too. When you hire me, you invest in yourself.
I earned my Ph.D. in Communication from UT-Austin in 2010. My Master’s thesis examined the role of “voice” in education and my doctoral dissertation analyzed story structure in Hollywood film editing. Over the last 20 years, I’ve worked as a video editor, associate producer, voice over director, and a documentary filmmaker. Most recently, I worked as an Assistant Professor at Queens University. They specifically hired me to help them implement a $5.75 million dollar grant from the Knight Foundation. Over the last seven years at Queens, I created a digital citizenship initiative and helped them launch Digital Charlotte and an undergraduate major in Digital Storytelling.
I’m also a published author. I’ve written about superheroes, social media, dogs, and digital citizenship. I’ve been cited and thanked in numerous books (here, here, here, here, and here just to name a few); featured and interviewed by various media outlets (here, here, and here). I’ve also given more than fifteen presentations at conferences across the country.
I’ve spent more than 15,000 hours sharpening my communication competencies. Whether it’s teaching 20 or 200 students, moderating live panel discussions with Oscar & Pulitzer Prize winners, or sharing stories on plenary conference panels, I know how to engage the audience. And so can you.
As the Pitch Prof, I blend aspects from consulting and coaching to give you the best of both worlds. Shakespeare once said, “all the world’s a stage.” This blended approach helps you own the stage and communicate with confidence.
We can meet in-person, over the phone, or online. Whatever it takes.
