Welcome to my project portfolio. After years of developing stories, Web sites, videos, audio tapes, and more, I thought it might be a good idea to make some of them available online. There are only a few examples here, but they are fairly representative of what I have been doing over the past few years.

Contact me at shermism@storyinsights.com if you have any questions or would like to know more about these samples.
