Have you ever had one of those moments when you think, “Whoa now, wait a sec, this is an amazing story!”? Yeah. Me too. In fact, I have them everyday. Always have. And I’ve always felt the need to share them, which is why I went to journalism school, specialized in magazines and then expanded my career to include digital media, marketing and content creation. For over two decades I’ve worked in every facet of the communications industry and in that time I’ve come to appreciate there are fascinating tales in everything we do. Although I tend to be drawn to the more adventurous side of life, whether it’s rock climbing in Oman or BASE jumping in Idaho, I also realize that good story telling transforms everything from press releases and advertising campaigns to website content and social media posts. There’s a reason my company is called Wonow, aka “Whoa now!” So what’s your story?
