Hi, I’m Michael,

I help organizations share stories with the world in ways that increase engagement with their work. This usually entails leading – or embedding with – storytellers, strategists, designers and developers on projects large and small.

I’m a media creator, and most of my work involves leveraging digital platforms for effective storytelling. This generally includes a hands-on mix of editorial creation, team development, team training and overall management to make that happen.

Sometimes this means I’m designing and developing web sites and other digital properties. Other times, it’s creating, strategizing and implementing editorial campaigns to push through those properties.

My sweet spot is combining the two with a particular focus on audience engagement and impact analysis.

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; founded a media lab; ran a media tech consultancy; and served as the national editor for a newspaper in Saudi Arabia.

Interested in working together? Me too.

Please get in touch.
