Greg Harris joins MediaStorm as Creative Director

We are thrilled to welcome Greg Harris, our new Creative Director, to the MediaStorm family. This is actually Greg’s second tour with us. Greg and I have a long history. He was at MediaStorm in 2007 as our first Creative Director. We worked together at Microsoft/MSNBC in the 90′s as well as through various collaborations with MetaStories, Brightcove and Daily Interactive Networks with the visonary Brian Monnin. Greg is a rare talent and a terrific person. He will be leading our efforts in interactive storytelling and the redesign of our offerings across all channels. I can’t think of a better partner for us to have as we move to next phase of MediaStorm. Welcome aboard (again) Greg!

On joining the team Greg says:

MediaStorm has assembled an amazing team of very talented people and I’m very excited to be working with team again. I’m looking forward to contributing the design and production of stories and projects that inspire, influence and change the lives of people around the world.
