I'm a wanderer.
I've been a writer, a director, an actor, a teacher, a photographer, a cook and a tech worker. In my chameleon-like existence, some skills are short term loans, others stick with me like old friends.
Digital storytelling has interested me since the early days of "Joe's Digital Diner," but I did not begin creating my own digital stories until many years later.
My primary interest is the way language is changing- becoming more visual, more immediate. Still, my literary roots will not let me give up the written word. I think it still has a significant role to play in digital storytelling. How that all works- I dunno. I'm just playing. Today stories are more like toys- they are built to delight, to mystify, to engage, to share an experience. I want to keep making better toys. The challenge is to not take it so seriously that the "mission" gets in the way of the telling, or the joy.
