Hey 👋 –

I’m Dave.

Since 2009, I’ve been obsessed with the art and science of storytelling.

In 2015, I began helping creative storytellers at this site, recognized by WRITER’S DIGEST for my “insightful visual guides” and “exceptional writing advice.”

In 2023, I embraced AI-powered storytelling techniques, enabling me to explore, develop, and create stories at an unprecedented pace and quality.

Students have shared my way of

“explaining plotting is the first time (they’ve) understood it”

because it gave them

“a handle on designing a plot framework and implementing it in a real and measurable way.”
