Digital Storytelling Workshop Instructor (Contractor). StoryCenter. Chicago, IL. January 07 – Present

As a part-time facilitator for StoryCenter for the last twelve years, I’ve helped people at all stages of the workshop process to find their own story and to tell it in their own voice. Participants begin the three-day workshop by sharing their own personal stories within a story circle where they receive feedback and ideas from the facilitators and fellow storytellers. They also participate in discussions of core concepts including the effective use of audio and visual elements, as well as tutorials introducing them to basic audio/video editing software and techniques. Each of the participants shares their finished story as part of a screening at the workshop’s conclusion.
