Hi, I’m Michael,
I was the founder of The Future Journalism Project, an initiative I began that first investigated disruption, opportunity and innovation in the news industry and later created live events that explored better ways to produce, consume and understand the news.
I’m currently on sabbatical but typically lead teams of storytellers, media strategists, marketers, and designers to help organizations share their stories with the world and increase engagement with their products and work.
Most of my work involves leveraging digital platforms for effective storytelling through a combination of text, images, audio and video. This includes a mix of hands-on creation, team development, team training and overall management to make that happen.
Over the years I’ve won an Emmy in advanced media; taught at both the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and its School of International and Public Affairs; ran a media tech consultancy; and served as the national editor for a newspaper in Saudi Arabia.
