On the Mic

In my experience as a storyteller, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my narrative design expertise before a variety of audiences as a speaker, presenter, and host. Enjoy this selection of virtual presentations in which I’ve been featured.

Architecture, Media, Politics, & Society Conference 2021

Overview: In 2021, I was selected to present my academic study on Walt Disney’s original concept of an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow at AMPS. My presentation took a historical look at the project and explored how, through market research and story-driven design, I could optimize the 55-year-old concept for a modern resident experience.
