I want to tell you a story.
Actually—it's your story.
You're going to love it, and I know your audience will want to hear it, too.
As a Creative Consultant in Louisiana, I live for collaboration, for telling other people's stories. So let's do something special.
I tell stories that resonate, with experience as Editor-in-Chief of 225 magazine—the city culture publication of Baton Rouge, Louisiana—and my work as Co-Founder and Editorial Director for Wonder South: Journal & Dry Goods and its website Surplus & Sight. I've also created and continue to produce two regular columns: The Creatives, published by InRegister, and Louisiana Made, published by Louisiana Life.
My experience includes years of producing narrative features, interviews, cover packages, news articles and reviews covering the arts, entrepreneurship, nonprofits, culinary industry, celebrities, events, outdoors, social issues and more for national and regional publications—including New York, Paste and Gambit, among others.
I manage dynamic video projects start-to-finish, for commercial, documentary, magazine, event, family and more. To watch and learn more about my award-winning short film FOREVER WAVES, visit here.
