My consulting practice builds on almost twenty years producing and publishing multimedia stories at the intersection of urban design and architecture, public policy, and social justice. Throughout, an overarching goal of my work has been to help individuals and institutions articulate their own priorities and tell their own stories.

I can help you make a film, plan a website, write a book proposal, reach new audiences, and deepen your impact.
