Bringing real stories to life, to help you connect in a more meaningful way.
I approach portrait interviews with both a journalistic curiosity and an artistic sensibility. My portraits aim to convey the context
and emotion that only a one-on-one interaction with another human being, however brief, can create. I focus on narratives of actual experiences. I use my research background on memory reconstruction techniques to conduct interviews that bring real people's stories to life, to help others connect with themselves, their customers or their business in a deeper and more intimate way.
Creating something beautiful with the stories people share with me is what inspires me. I honor the stories shared with me by creating a vessel that brings their poetry to life.
Portraits can be used as personal mantras, mission reminders, or for internal and external communication.
INDIVIDUAL PORTRAITS are used as reminders, a sort of personal mantra of who you are and what you do and why. A personal mantra can be kept private or used as an asset to share with others. People often use elements of their portraits to create content for their website, social media and any other form of internal or external communication.
GROUP PORTRAITS elevate the collective work that’s being created, connecting everyday work with mission and customer impact. These portraits capture the beauty and meaning of the everyday work and the value the group brings to the overall organization or community. A group profile includes individual interviews, but mainly focuses on the common patterns that emerge within a group.
CUSTOMER PORTRAITS are used by organizations to gain a deeper understanding of their customers. They bring real people's stories to life, and help internal teams connect and empathize with the people they serve.
