Owner at First Turn Media
Topic: Digital Storytelling in Fundraising
With years of experience building websites, I am a self-starting innovator who is highly motivated to see projects through from start to finish. I specialize in multi-tiered technical and creative integrations for any type of media and have spent close to a decade customizing solutions for online video delivery. Paired with my extensive experience in communications and the entertainment industry, I have the unique ability to cultivate vision and big-picture roadmaps while translating them down to technical deliverables. This includes finding a unique approach to every story or article; engaging and energizing companies to be a participatory player in the ever-changing media landscape; bringing together websites, social media, video technology, apps, and print materials; writing about a high peak or a sailing adventure; and just digging deep and breathing life into new projects. When I can, I put in time doing volunteer work. I've worked at orphanages in Kenya both doing direct work with the kids and creating videos for the organization to bring in more volunteers. I also have been known to volunteer in classrooms and preschools around VT. And I often help out at animal shelters. I received a bachelor of fine arts in Film Production and a minor in Creative Writing from Concordia University in Montreal. I am an avid writer in a variety of genres, including outdoor writing, fiction, brand marketing, and poetry. When I'm not writing or running a business, you can find me skiing powder, running, and reading about anything related to cyberspace.
