About Water on Mars Media

Why Water on Mars?

Water on Mars is future-thinking, discovery, imagination. It’s a little science fiction, sure, but maybe you’ve noticed that geek is chic these days. Today’s multimedia might be overrun with tedium and taken over by corporate interests, but it’s also that exciting new frontier for a lot of people, and there’s so much room for creative growth. Media, whether old, new or social, is like water on Mars: we found it, now what do we do with it?

I am available as a consultant, a freelancer, and a full-time employee. My strengths are creative story-telling, video production, team management, social media relationships, writing and wrangling.
