Andrew RuddBiography

Stories build communities.

But crafting stories that thoughtfully engage tensions in communities? And build a shared optimism about our path forward together?

That's an art form as ancient and as fresh as any domain of human knowledge.

I bring a conventional education in rhetoric and ethnography and performance to a keen interest (and plenty of experience) in filmmaking and social media. I want to help you build the story/path that combines community + hope.
