You might think I don't have a specialty. Yes, I have a background in film, television, radio, theater, fashion journalism, photography, event management, technology development, tech journalism, entrepreneurship, podcasting, and a number of other important areas, but my core competency is always going to be communication. Listening, getting other people to express themselves clearly, and getting people to hear each other is what I've always been best at doing.
