Many young people (and even some adults) think history is boring and museums dull.
But history isn't the problem. It's the way it's presented.
Everyone loves a good story. And we all learn best through play.
So I put the story back in history to make it fun and unforgettable.
I’ve made it my life’s goal to bring history and culture to life.
Now, I'm excited to support you.
Let's Make History Together!
As a Story Consultant & Author
I aid cultural institutions and tourism destinations to develop age-appropriate story-driven treasure hunts enhanced with gamification, augmented reality, and other interactive features that highlight their cultural legacy in an immersive, engaging way. I use story as a vehicle to educate about history and develop products that work across multiple formats so that they may have the broadest reach.
As an Editor
I guide authors of historical fiction and creative nonfiction through the developmental process of crafting and publishing compelling, page-turning tales. I've worked with such world renowned authors and editors as Mary Hoffman and Emma D. Dryden, respectively.
As a Project Manager
I produce immersive place-based story-driven tours, direct to digital, for such educational travel brands as Time Traveler Tours, then repurpose the creative assets in these tours to produce e-, audio, and print editions for Time Traveler Tales.
As an Educator
I work with secondary school and university-aged students to marry research with creative writing to invent and publish interactive stories, using a variety of accessible digital creation tools.
My Interdisciplinary approach enables young people to show their understanding of historic people, places, and events as opposed to tell it through traditional test taking.
I teach authors of all ages all over the world in one-on-one weekly Skype sessions.
I'm available to act as faculty in Writers Retreats and Conferences worldwide.
As a Presenter
I love speaking and presenting on the topic of digital storytelling, cultural literacy, educational tourism, tech-in-education, etc. -- your venue or mine.
