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. Click on the images below or More Information to see whom the client was, what topic they addressed, what the content covered, and a synopsis of the story.
