• You've Reached The Storytelling Hotline

    It's tough to get your message out in today's world. I know. There's a lot of noise out there.


    You want to break through.


    You could do it like this:

    But that would only work for so long before somebody called the cops.


    What if, instead, you could do it like this:

    (Aw! Look at that nice-looking fella! What a good listener!)

    This is one of life's many bazillion mysteries: if you want to be heard, you've got to listen first.


    The best way to break through is by connecting with your audience.


    Because when people feel heard, that's when they listen.


    (Sure, you may be saying. Duh!
    That sounds good in theory - but how does that work in real life?

    Especially online where everybody just seems to be shouting all the time?)


    I have lots of experience with this. And I can help.


    For over 15 years I’ve been writing stories for interactive entertainment -
    and that's an industry that mints money.
    In 2017, it generated $36 billion dollars in revenue.
    (That's in one year, y'all.)

    Titles in my portfolio have sold over 30 million units and generated over $500 million in sales. (What!)


    Why are these projects so dang irresistible? Why do they spend so much money on our stuff?

    Because we create an escape that stars YOU. We put you right in the heart of it all.
    We’ve figured out how to co-create our story with the audience - and it's wild.

    And here's the thing: we are all interactive storytellers now.


    Whether you work in entertainment, journalism, education, content strategy, or politics,
    you are talking to an audience that can get in there, talk back, or log out at a moment’s notice.


    For your work to work, it has to be engaging -
    and it will be if you think of it as an interactive experience.

    When you invite your audience into your story,
    you make an impact, you make a difference - AND you make bank.

    Good news: it's not about digital bells & whistles.


    It's just about understanding how people tick.
    It's about empathy.

    It's about meeting your audience where they're at -

    and then convincing them to go on a journey with you.


    Call me, and I'll tell you more about it.


    Because if you're doing good work - and you are - it deserves to get out there.

    Does this sound like you?

    • You work in entertainment, but suddenly that means interactive (or immersive) entertainment, and you’re not sure what that even means for your work, and the whole thing is giving you night sweats
    • You’re a journalist, reporting on one of the most action-packed chapters in American history, and you’re fighting to be heard
    • You’re a content strategist, looking for the secret sauce that will get people to read your sh*t already 
    • You’re an educator and you know students are waiting for you online - but you don’t know how in the world you’re going to engage with a class that you can’t see or hear
    • You’re a candidate on a mission or an activist with a cause, and you know your message could make a positive difference in the world - but you can’t seem to break through all the noise
    • You’re working on a digital project - games, VR, augmented reality - and the storytelling part has got you stumped. It feels confusing and overwhelming and you don’t know where to begin. You wish you could just talk shop with someone who has been there, done that and can help make sense of it all
