I love to listen.
Which explains a few things. Like...
That time I drove around the country and went on 50 first dates, one in every state.
Wading into the hearts and minds of our countrymen with Our Fellow Americans, by asking complete strangers to tell me their feelings about America.
Why I mentor new writers and help them land gigs over at Copy Muse Collective.
Investing in audio equipment for The Listening Cure, a podcast I'm working on.
And a teaching career that transitioned into a human-centered design practice, learning from mentors in person and online, and constantly pushing content to be at the table when it comes to creating a new way of telling a story.
Some people like to be formal. I can dig it: you can review my resume.
I love it when real people say "Hi!" I'm always happy to talk shop, hear about something you'd like help with, or exchange notes about the nature of the universe. Ping me at: alicia [dot] ostarello [at] gmail [dot] com.
