People talk about passions. In the advertising industry, someone may have a passion in graphic design or copywriting. But my passion covers a broader scope that can be applied to many different disciplines and avenues of creativity. That passion is storytelling.

Ever since I was a kid, my first love has always been the cinema. I grew up watching the likes of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 and Joe Bob Brigg's Monster Vision. And my earliest memory of a film wasn't The Lion King or some other Disney picture, but rather Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. This fascination gave me the eye for direction, storytelling and what it takes to captivate an audience.

Also I found that one talent I possessed was the ability to understand the human condition and what makes a person tick. This is a talent, coupled with my love of storytelling, that I pursue to make a living off of as a planner/storyteller. Whether it be through literary writing in my off time or developing and executing stories that truly connect with the consumer for an agency that takes pride in creating visual and meaningful work.

Storytelling has the ability to affect and move people. That is the reason why I want my storytelling to be more than just a hobby, but rather my livelihood.
