Lori had a funky route into storytelling because back in the day she didn’t really enjoy reading or writing. She majored in a totally different degree (economics at a US university) before working in finance and then moving into events where her creativity was UNLEASHED. She found the role split into storytelling and selling and realised that not only could she make a career from storytelling, but that she loved it!
Lori is a storyteller at heart. Whether it’s verbal or written, she knows how to engagingly convey a concept from start to finish, maintaining a consistent thread throughout the narrative. She’s worked worked at creative agencies in diverse roles for almost 20 years, including advertising, communications, marketing and events. She’s from NYC, has lived in San Francisco and London, and has worked with clients across the globe. This includes big brands like Pfizer and Ford, to start-ups and foundations.
