  • Why I'm passionate about

    Storytelling

    I'm infinitely curious about... everything. Life, myself, other people. It all fascinates me. This curiosity fuels a passion for learning. As someone who spent the last decade trying to understand how people learn and how I, as a learning and development professional, can design an experience that helps them do so, here's the conclusion I've come to: teaching starts with empathy. Before you can help someone grow, you first have to see the world through their eyes. And there's no better empathy building tool than storytelling. If you want to learn from, connect with, or teach someone, first listen to their story.

Thanks for checking out Story First Design. This is a playground I use to strengthen my storytelling muscles and scratch that itch to create. I hope you enjoy experiencing my stories as much as I enjoy creating them.
