“On my own I will just create, and if it works, it works, and if it doesn’t, I’ll create something else.” — Oprah Winfrey

 

The best way to experience a story is to lose yourself in it.

I’ve long been a fan of using short-form video and audio to help immerse people into the world of a story. I have experience working with both.

Likewise, maps, charts and other graphics can take what may have been a boring set of numbers, and turning it on its head.

I have experience working with data visualization programs including Tableau, Infogram and Datawrapper.

The best immersive experience can be a website dedicated to a single topic. I’ve designed and edited more Wordpress sites than you can imagine, but I also have experience working in a variety of CMS platforms.
