I am a Professor of Practice at Cabrini University, multimedia journalist, and creative consultant dedicated to exploring new creative ways to share reliable stories in multiple forms.

My passion is driving news media forward, exploring and practicing innovative ways to teach and support fact-driven, engaging, and meaningful storytelling.

I freelance for magazines, news organizations, and nonprofits that promote affordable housing, advocate for victims of crime and help the needy. With fewer reporters on the ground, groups who help the underserved need more coverage than ever.

I offer consulting and media production services in writing, video and audio promotion, and social media / audience engagement. As an educator, I continue to coach students and professionals in all forms of storytelling.

What unites people? Armies? Gold? Flags? Stories. There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. Nothing can stop it. No enemy can defeat it.
