I spent my formative years sitting around kitchen tables, in rustbelt diners in Northeastern Ohio, and on front porches in the rain, always listening to family members, machinists, foremen and friends talk about where they’ve been. I learned at a young age that our stories bind us together, and that every movement — no matter how major or minuscule — starts with a story.
Because, in the end, a well-told story changes lives — and that’s why I write. Because stories about what others have done, or what they want to do, inspire movement. Your story can turn heads; it can put you on the map; it can attract a following. Every well-written magazine article, successful business deal, or a well-developed content strategy starts with a story of an individual, an institution, or an idea. All you have to do is find a way to tell it.
And that’s why I’m here: To tell my story … and to help you tell yours, too.
