All my life, I have been a storyteller. After all, storytelling is an art. A good story can bring the past into the present. It can ignite the imagination revealing possible futures. For children, especially, storytelling is a powerful influence that can help shape attitude and change perspectives.It can give courage and hope as a way forward. Or, it can simply provide comfort and love.
For me, creating stories for children is one of the most important ways I can give back to the world and truly make a difference.
Throughout my professional career, I have enjoyed learning from those in the creative and design industries. And through these work experiences, I have become a professional storyteller of brands.
What incredible fun it was to shape a brand and create the marketing programs that told that story to the world market. But for all the excitement around creating and launching products, I kept coming back to the power, influence and silliness of creating stories for children.
When I hear children laugh as they listen to one of my stories, the world is a wonderful, magical place…and I’m reminded that I’m on the right path.
