What’s Your Story?

My name is Liisa Ogburn and I’m a story-gatherer. With my microphone, a camera, or a pen, I dive into those stories that allow us to reconnect with our hearts.

Over the last decade I’ve gathered stories about points where we are in an uncomfortable transition, between one life and another. I’ve gathered stories about home, about dreams, about legacy and what makes a life meaningful and rich.

We live in an increasingly distracted and disconnected world. Stories are my antidote to that. To view some of my projects, click the slider above.

    "Listening is an act of love."
