I have a creative spirit and an investigative mind. So, when I'm not coaching or speaking, I fill my time creating stories about things I find curious. Like why adults don't play. Or what it would be like to be blind. Here are just a few of my creative projects:


FILM: OPEN HOUSE
{5 min}

[My role: director, writer, producer]

A nod to analog communication methods.
An appreciation for making things.
A desire for connection.
A love story.


FILM: PUDDLE SONG
{2 min}

[My role: director, writer, producer]

An exploration of play, judgment, and inhibition. This film is one in a series of tone poems that explore human behavior and emotion within the framework of a single moment or situation.


PODCAST: DIALOGUE IN THE DARK
{15 min}

[My role: producer, writer, host]

In this podcast, I'll take you on a journey into a world of darkness where people use their hands, hearing and sense of smell to discover where they are. We’ll explore an immersive exhibition called Dialogue in the Dark, where blind guides help visitors move through multiple environments, experiencing the world without sight. Creative Director John Zaller and exhibition guide Gloria Fisher talk about the mission behind this experience and the profound impact it has upon visitors. While the exhibition environments have been carefully crafted, the physical space is not the focus of the experience; it simply provides a frame for interpersonal connection. Join me on this adventure into darkness; your perspective about sight will never be the same. 


PODCAST: THE FUTURE OF PLANETARIUMS
{15 min}

[My role: producer, writer, host]

When you think about planetariums, you probably think about craning your head way back looking up at a sea of stars spread across a dome ceiling, right? Well, something is changing in the planetarium world. With the introduction of digital projectors, planetariums are evolving into 3D spaces that are being used for much more than star-gazing. I learned about this revolution through Rachel Connolly, Director of the Rauch Planetarium at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. She told me about all kinds of possibilities for planetarium use in the future and potential impact upon scientists, astronomy, and education. Imagine if, while learning about molecules, you stood inside one, for example…


Podcast: Couch Surfing
{15 min}

[My role: producer, writer, host]

When I made my way to Costa Rica for the first time, I wanted to get under its skin to get a sense of what life is really like there. So, I tapped into an international network of people who open their homes to travelers called Couch Surfing. I figured if I stayed with a local who really knew the culture, I’d have a far more rich experience than a tour book could bring. In this podcast, I share that first couch surfing experience with you through conversations with Dan Hoffer, one of the founders of Couch Surfing and Brenda Burnside, my couch surfing host.
