"My storytelling approach—no matter the medium— is to touch people. Whether that person is reading, listening or watching my work, I want them to want to tell someone later. I want them to laugh, smile or even nod in agreement even though they're alone on a long subway or car ride. For me, a good story starts a conversation with the audience, one that begins with the feeling you get when a friend comes up to you and says: Let me tell you a story. "
