Hi, I’m Paul Dumitru and I’ve been doing written and visual storytelling since 2006: as a journalist, content marketing professional, social media enthusiast, writing coach, creative thinker, freelancer and entrepreneur.

Right now, in my work, I’m taking part in meaningful conversation, like events, conferences, workshops, strategic meetings, team meetings etc., where I use drawings to turn people’s ideas and abstract concepts into meaningful visual stories.

Down the road, these visual stories help people to better understand, remember, work, co-create and facilitate innovation. There are all kinds of names for this process: graphic recording, graphic facilitation, scribing, sketch noting, mind mapping. It all depends on the context and the objectives, but in the end, the root has one name: visual thinking.

Below is my work experience and my story. While there are separate chapters, they almost all overlap and intertwine. An experience lead to another and, in the end, altogether, they are weaving both a career and personal story of struggle, discovery and enthusiasm.

For my detailed work experience you can take a sneak peak at my LinkedIn profile.
