Storytelling—it’s what started me on this multimedia path. As a kid, I remember sitting by the window in my family’s farmhouse reading a fantasy fiction novel. With the warmth of the fireplace burning nearby, I looked at the woods and fields just beyond the glass pane and wondered if there was a secret portal to another world hidden somewhere out there. That’s when the power of narrative creation struck me. I felt this longing to tell stories that transported people to other planes of existence and cause them to look at their own world and wonder, “What if I were in this story?”
Years of rigorous experimentation with writing as a craft proved how difficult it is to tell genuine stories. I have several novels in the project queue and have written short stories and published poems that got me closer to finding my voice. However, letting go of presuppositions of “original” storytelling is what helped me discover my love for digital communications. Since college, I have worked for various nonprofits and organizations as a marketing professional to uplift local narratives around community advocacy causes. Through this work, I leveraged my skills to lead strategic media campaigns and direct content creation, sharing stories of everyday people who are making a difference.
To this day, I utilize my expertise to transport readers and viewers into different perspective realms to ask the same question: “What if I were in this story?” and spur them toward action.
This is why I launched the Pray for Micah Podcast. As a Kansas City-raised writer, creative, and ex-evangelical, I still have a deep longing and connection to spiritual mysticism, so I interview guests who are on a similar path to explore life’s big questions. I host people of various faiths and agnostic worldviews in order to provide space for healing and connection. Through each recorded session, my listeners and I gain fresh perspectives of the human experience by hearing each other's artistic journeys, personal struggles, and visionary breakthroughs. We share some laughs, too, because in the end we can’t take life too seriously, especially when we recognize how short our time on this planet really is. I am still working on some traditional writing projects, but hosting this show and collaborating with other artists in new multimedia environments has shown me there are numerous pathways to share our stories and discover our sacred connectedness.
I believe the creative arts are like wizard magic and have the power to shape whole governments, cultures, and communities—but first, we must let them transform us as individuals. Join me on this journey toward spiritual and relational discovery and let's find our cosmic significance together.
