A podcast about the Creative Process, Storytelling, and Social Change.


I created this podcast to inspire intentional storytelling.

With the rise of social media, so many people have been rushing to publish content and lots of it.

The world is awash in content. We don’t need more content.

We need more stories, ones that are told well and ones that help us to understand our world and inspire humans to care for themselves, others, the environment, and the planet.

We need to build bridges between current beliefs and provide new ways of seeing what is possible.

In this podcast, I have conversations with artists, entrepreneurs, activists and thinkers who spend their lives in the space of seeing the world differently and exploring new ways of expressing  these visions.


Exploring the creative process.

Through conversations we explore the elements that go into creating a story, a performance, a song, an artwork, a message that has meaning.

From intentions to craft, from perception to tools, from internal work to external strategies.


Each season focuses on a different angle of storytelling through the ideas and insights of change makers, thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs.

I hope their stories inspire you to share your stories.

People are craving good stories, let’s make something great.

What has inspired me and my creative process –

one of the books has most influenced my creative process has been Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics by Michael Rabinger. The title may not sound exciting one of his exercises opened my eyes and changed my idea of filmmaking and storytelling was in this book.

In film, everything matters.

Every little detail from the lighting, the angle of the camera, the sound design, the order of what we see impacts our perception and therefore the meaning we create and the feeling we take away from a film.

There is value in slowing down and thinking about what it is we want to share.
