I am a creative consultant based in New York City. My work focuses on telling clear and artful stories that complicate the narratives we have for ourselves and each other.
For four years, I worked at The Moth in a variety of roles, including Producer of its live shows and Manager of its Community Program, a workshop series that practices storytelling as an artform and a powerful tool for communication.
Currently, I am a Director for The Moth Mainstage, a live storytelling show recorded for the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour and podcast. I work with people to identify, craft, and share true stories from their lives on legendary stages around the world, including the Sydney Opera House, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Apollo Theater, among others. I also edit the Longform podcast and have contributed to NPR, TED, Carnegie Magazine, Creative Nonfiction, and more.
I am available for podcast and story consulting in a variety of contexts. For rates and quotes, please contact me below.
In general, I enjoy when people write like they talk and speak like themselves.
