YOUR STORY, My Words
I cowrote this script with the ever talented Jay Worsley. The goal was to showcase real people pushing through everyday distractions and barriers to get to that “sore-the-next-day pride and joy.” MDRN Athlete provides the resources to help you get there.
“Elle Limebear has lived her life between two worlds. As the daughter of Delirious? front man, Martin Smith, Elle has experienced first-hand the thrill of stadiums filled with people while on tour around the world. As a worship leader and youth pastor in Brighton, UK, she is immersed in a close-knit, daily ministry within her community. She grew up seeing the global church and her local church worshipping God simultaneously.”
I had the privilege of working with Elle Limebear and Provident Label Group on a new bio for Elle. Click here to read the full bio and learn more about her music.
I wrote the voiceover for this promotional film for Amelia James created by Everly Made Films. The goal was to show women that they could provide for themselves and their families and still have time to do the things they love by being an Amelia James Representative.
"WE PILE ROCKS AS ALTARS OF REMEMBRANCE, SET ASIDE CERTAIN DAYS AS SACRED, AND EVEN SHARE COMMUNION MEALS TO RECALL AND REFLECT. OUR FAITH IS BUILT ON REMEMBERING."
I was contracted by Provident Label Group to write a narrative driven bio for the pop-folk worship band I AM THEY. Click here to read their bio page and check out their music while you are at it.
