Jonathan White

Dr. Jonny White proposes that two of the most powerful forces shaping our lives are (1) the way we tell our own story and (2) the stories we experience through media (including the Web, TV, ads, books, film, and mobile devices). As a media psychologist and lecturer, he lives and teaches his philosophy about shaping and choosing our stories wisely, while writing and producing media designed to have positive psychological effects.

At 30, he has created an award-winning web-documentary, earned two undergraduate and three graduate degrees, started and sold a web-based company, kitesurfed on three continents, and bicycled from the top to the bottom of Africa. Strictly due to his ongoing research on how our stories create our reality, Dr. White may tend to seem a little uncertain about whether he is awake, dreaming, or just making it all up.
