Hedged In: A Changeling Story 

Executive Producer, Creative Director, Media Production, Marketing  

Hedged In: A Changeling Story, is an actual play podcast available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts can be found. An 'Actual Play' is a style of podcast that is part improv and part audio drama that uses role playing games as a frame work.  

When creating Hedged In, I ask myself these questions: Is this inclusive? Does this reach my target audience? What have I learned? What do I still need to learn? Hedged In: A Changeling Story uses all my skills as a designer: pushing me to learn new skills, while expanding and adapting older ones. Backgrounds in marketing allow me to understand what works in the trends and what doesn’t. Backgrounds in video production are useful while teaching yourself how to edit purely audio mediums.

Being a leader in the project means that I also have to hold myself accountable to my cast, my peers and my audience. Developing a code of ethics that insures that your team works smoothly and your project shines. Leadership also means delegation— in this case taking on Brianna Collins (TwitterWebsite) for Illustration, and assigning other cast members adjacent assignments (social media assistance and transcriptions of the episodes)
