Opening new doors
“I love finding the narrative and interesting twists to a story, so that we don’t always have to enter through the front door. Sometime, I like to walk in through the side door or the backdoor because it is often a more compelling way to tell a story and it makes it memorable. And I love to collaborate—it makes the storytelling magic happen.”
