The stories we tell each other weave the fabric of our shared reality, and the right story delivered in just the right way can change the way we see things forever. My mission is to help writers with a message tap into their inner creativity, find their voice, and learn to tell memorable, entertaining stories that touch hearts and open minds.

Over the last decade, I've analyzed hundreds of stories and worked with novelists and screenwriters around the world. While trends change and new media emerge, one thing remains true — at their very core, stories exist to make us feel something. To connect us with a shared experience. To make our hearts race, or ache. To make us question what we thought we knew. But how are these feelings created from just words on a page? Why do you remember some movies for years, while others evaporate from your mind as you drive away from the theater? This is where story mechanics come in — using structure and writing style to harness your storytelling potential and shape your ideas into powerful works that will resonate and entertain across time.

Whether your goal is to touch, teach, or simply to entertain, I want to use my knowledge and experience to help you bring forth your best story and style it for success. We’ve all got stories to tell — what’s yours?
