Hi everyone! I've just returned from a week enjoying a big tasty bite of the Big Apple. Even in chilly January, that most amazing city welcomed me with warm open arms.
I went for meetings. Lots of them. On Wednesday, they went on for 10 straight hours!
I met with some of the most inspiring leaders in the world of digital storytelling -- the funders and directors of NYC's top cultural institutions and philanthropic organizations -- as well as a few serial start-up entrepreneurs, mentors all, and an angel investor.
And now there are meetings here in London to follow those in NY.
I'm pitching the TTT&T concept to validate whether or not we're on the right track before the Team and I rev up our engines to mach speed. Do we know our audience well? Are we responding to real needs? Are we offering the right solution for them?

I was immediately taken by Sarah and her team’s mission to combine storytelling, education, and publishing. The focus on crafting compelling narratives, and marrying history with first-hand experience, deeply resonated with me. I am thrilled to be a part of this team!
