Chief Storyteller and Nerd for Good
(AKA Digital Strategist)
As the Chief Storyteller and Nerd for Good at dotOrgStrategy, Boris loves to combine his passions for technology, storytelling, and making a positive difference in the world.
Discovering the communicative power of technology at a young age, Boris began programming and working with early online computer networks (BBSes) from elementary school through his first years in college. Desiring to make a more direct and personal impact, he switched focus to entertainment, where he discovered the power of storytelling to change lives. Boris earned BFA and Post Grad degrees in Theatre, then pursued acting, writing and directing for stage and screen in New York and Los Angeles.
Since 2011, Boris has been helping nonprofits increase their impact locally and globally through effective use of storytelling across digital media including websites, social media, email, video, advertising and crowdfunding. Boris launched dotOrgStrategy as a platform for sharing knowledge, strategies and resources that help nonprofits effectively leverage technology to achieve and expand their missions, without over-stretching their resources.
Some of the wonderful organizations that Boris has worked with include:
