Why the Human Stories Behind Science Matter

Last May, at our big eighth anniversary fundraiser at Caveat in New York City, I put together a presentation about my work with Story Collider and why it matters to me. I can’t watch it personally, because seeing my own stark sincerity is like staring directly into the sun, but I hope you enjoy!

And if you’d like to follow my ongoing adventures as Story Collider’s AD, I’m blogging about our travels and the things I see and learn about science and storytelling along the way here.
