I am a storyteller
I am a storyteller
The brain detects patterns.
We find them in words. We use words to weave stories.
We crave stories.
We use them to make sense of our world, to share and be understood.
Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you.
What kind of story do you need? I’ll share some specific examples with you.
“How do we generate excitement about a newly reiterated technology that’s already been tried but failed to make a splash?” That was my client’s objective for this general press release announcing their successful venture capital funding round.
You've got an idea!
How do you tell your story when your product is intangible? That’s the challenge this client presented to me. I wrote the script, which the whiteboard video artists used to create the animation.
Ever wonder why you have to drive some place to get an oil change? This startup company engaged me to write and direct a video – not to demonstrate the product, but to tell the story of why they decided to reinvent a broken industry.

I was hired to edit and prepare this manuscript for publication. It remains one of Amazon’s top 100 best selling business books on web marketing and e-commerce.
How do you make a name for yourself as a purveyor of premium green tea? Tell your story! This company hired me to introduce the world to their new but ancient product with blog posts.
A good story invites you to share its worldview, even if it’s a new view for you. My client’s goal was to help people find ways to adapt to a Paleo Diet lifestyle. We tackled the challenge with their blog.

Would I hire him again? In a heartbeat!”Bill Dawson | Manex Interactive
“Alright, it’s obvious, Kawika is a gifted storyteller. He knows how to strike the right chords with his audiences. As copywriting goes, I wouldn’t want anyone else editing my work…wish he could have edited this. Take these talents away and you still have someone who gets ‘it’. Adaptation, change, evolution, delivering profound experiences one interaction at a time. This is Kawika. I highly recommend his talents and character.”Justin Hanson | Runway 20 Ux/Ui
