We believe that life-writing is essential to living; that writing life is a privilege, right, and responsibility; that written words captivate the atmosphere of lived experience; that there are as many styles of life-writing as there are lives.
We are zealous preservers of our clients’ histories, memories, and legacies. We see preservation not just as recollection of ancestors and origins, but also as pre-serving: a proactive form of service for self, family, community, and posterity.
Our mission is to create narratives that enlighten, entertain, and inspire while preserving stories that are vital to life.
Growing up, the older brother studied Shakespeare while the younger became fluent in the language of structures and systems. Aaron was a scholar scribbling his way to the end of a seven-year sentence, when an advisor urged him to think less like a philosopher and more like an engineer. Puzzled, he tapped AJ for answers. The methodical younger brother taught the older how to harness creative chaos. The older taught the younger how to humanize data. Immersed in demand for life-writing, Aaron asked his banker brother if he knew how to write a business plan. The short answer is “yes,” AJ said, “but I’ll need to take a look at your books.”
