Twelve Ways I Can Help
As A Leader
Managing Creative Teams
Need a leader who can help creatives deliver their best work? I’ve got more than two decades of experience directing, aligning, and supporting the work of writers, photographers, graphic designers, editors, and cinematographers.
Organizing the Work
Still trying to get 21st Century work done with 20th Century workflows? (Or no workflow at all?) Let me help you clarify pain points, streamline processes, collaborate on complex projects, and get people working together.
Defining Content Strategy
Want the right message in front of the right people at the right time? I can help you identify content types, map your messaging, clarify your intentions, and make data-driven decisions about what projects to tackle first.
As a Storyteller
Finding the Story
If you need people to remember — and act — on your messages, I can help you craft characters people care about, create tensions that maintain attention, and blend information with emotion in ways that prompt action.
Preventing Death by PowerPoint
Want to keep people focused on what really matters? Together, we can organize an effective story, build vivid visuals, and practice pacing that will make your message as motivating and memorable as it should be.
Fixing Broken Stories
Do you have articles, scripts, podcasts, or videos that don’t quite work? I can help you put a finger on what the problem really is … and offer specific, practical advice on how to improve the media you’re making.
As a Writer
Scripting and Storyboarding
What parts of your message are critical? How do your ideas need to be organized? How can you deliver complex ideas in plain English … or illustrate them to make them memorable? My scripts and storyboards can help you.
Writing for Your Audience
Need to connect an audience to your expertise? As the author of a half-dozen “For Beginners” books and writer of dozens of educational videos, I can work with experts to scale their insights for audiences at any level.
Summarizing for Clarity
Need to find the common thread in 380 articles? Want the contents of a book boiled down to a single page? I’m an expert at boiling down information to the essentials and presenting core ideas in compact formats.
As a Corporate Creative
Putting Ideas to Work
Need to shift from ideas to action? I literally wrote the book on (and designed a powerful tool for ) brainstorming. I can help teams envision solutions, organize information, and author project plans that turn ideas into realities.
Managing Complex Projects
So many things to achieve in so little time! Let’s talk about how you can use powerful tools (like Asana) to capture what needs to get done, organize those tasks into a project plan, and collaborate as efficiently as possible.
Making Media (on a Shoestring Budget)
Need a one-man Swiss Army Knife of creativity — someone who can handle ideation, writing, graphic designs, logos, presentations, and basic audio/video production on iPhones, iPads, and MacBook Pros? Let’s talk!
