Why do you do what you do?

Storytelling lies at the heart of any marketing campaign. While the methods and mediums through which we tell stories continue to evolve, it’s still the most potent way to influence others. The work our nonprofit clients do are stories that deserve to be told, and I’m grateful to play a part in celebrating and broadcasting them.

When I’m not fundraising, I’m…

Listening to audiobooks and podcasts, training for my next race, volunteering with my church, or planning my next trip. I also enjoy watching historical dramas, documentaries, and reruns of Gilmore Girls.
