live graphic recording

 

 

Graphic Recording, or scribing, is the colorful act of making a meeting, conversation or presentation highly visible, in real time, through pictures and words.

 

Scribing giving shape and substance to content by revealing the underlying patterns of thought, dialogue and possibility. It makes connections, facilitates constructive conversations, and documents shared experience to make interactions more effective.

 

It also creates a visual artifact - a touchstone both in the immediate moment and a tangible reference for the moments yet to come.

 

I bring an evolving visual sensibility and years of deep listening practice to this work, and am committed to supporting the deepest functioning of the groups and individuals that I serve.

 

templates and distillations

 

 

BEFORE: Visual containers or templates can help direct and inform group work in numerous ways, from giving small groups a common framework for activities, to being an evocative guideline or receptacle for collective ideas. Templates can be created in advance to augment live recording and support group work. They can also be used on their own. 

 

AFTER: After live events, sometimes further distillation of ideas is required. Whether to create a 'takeaway piece' for participants, a high level visualization to share externally, or simply because circumstances make it difficult to record on the spot, I can design and draw further maps, infographics or summaries post-event as well. 

 

ANYTIME: Visuals are also useful in non-event-specific projects, such as refining and illustrating your company's story, value proposition, or messaging for ongoing use. Contact me to explore this option more. 

 

 

facilitated visioning and strategy work - for groups and individual leaders

 

Scribing is the most visible part of what I do, but it's just the tip of the iceberg. When it comes to strategy and process work, I have a track record of designing and delivering exactly the sessions that leaders and teams need most. Fostering internal congruity and organizational alignment, uncovering hidden dynamics, defining and mapping out a team's vision, articulating the complexities of a new mission in concise language - in all cases I deliver, bringing my entire skillset to the table, and the wall. 

 

whiteboard videos

Sometimes, nothing is as moving as the moving image.

 

As of late 2019, I'm proud to be collaborating with Austin-based digital video artist Juan Carlos Pulido to bring your story to life. From script to storyboard to final cut, our combined decades of experience will deliver a product that sets you and your message a cut above.

Our first production, for the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, outlines their plans for 2020.

 

What story do YOU need to tell? 

plenary presentations and visual thinking workshops 

 

The Listening To See series grew out of a keynote presentation delivered in Oklahoma City in 2018.  It explores the strengths and insights that the field of visual thinking offers all of us, regardless of the work we do. This content is available for delivery in plenary or small group presentations, as a workshop series, or a combination of the two.  All formats provide participants with comprehensive encounters with visual thinking practices, making the unseen seen. 

memorials and celebrations

 

Graphic recording is a powerful way to pay tribute to the momentous occasions in a person's life, whether living or deceased. Drawing on my own spiritual and contemplative practices, personal journeys, and training in Spiritual Care, I am constantly honored to capture the memories and well-wishes of family and friends at the memorials and celebrations of dear ones. Illustrated Life Stories or Story Walls are also the perfect way to enhance and commemorate milestone occasions such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, retirement parties, anniversaries, and more.
