“The storyteller takes what he tells from experience – his own or that reported by others. And he in turn makes it the experience of those who are listening to his tale.”
I’m a storyteller.
In the past two decades, my job titles have changed. I’ve been called police reporter, public relations guy, media communications professional, marketing consultant, graduate school recruiter, and college professor.
The titles might alter from time to time, but my professional role is always storyteller.
I tell stories that inform, educate and entertain. I tell stories that prompt people to act — to read more, to click through, to call for an interview, and sometimes to spend their money. It’s fun. It’s challenging. It’s ever-changing.
I work full time in Baylor University’s Office of Media and Public Relations, where I’ve been since 2011. My mission is to recruit and train our faculty experts and researchers to work with the media and share their stories. I love this work and I see great opportunities.
In addition to my work in media communications, I’ve found passion in the classroom. I’m blessed to pick up a few classes each year in Baylor’s journalism, public relations and new media department. I currently teach a class on journalism law and ethics.
I am married to a beautiful woman, Corinn, and we have three sons. We live in Temple, Texas.
This site exists as a depository for my stories and my thoughts (if you care to know them). It’s also a place for you to contact me if I can help you in some way tell your stories.
My thoughts and opinions are my own.
