Ru Mahoney | Impact Producer

I believe a well told story has the power to transform individuals, communities, and global issues. I think how a story is told matters just as much as what is told. I look for projects willing to take an innovative approach to impact, leveraging multimedia storytelling to engage new audiences and break outside echo chambers.

The media industry is in a period of transition, changing how productions are developed, funded, distributed and marketed. My team brings evidence-based strategies to the entire production process, from narrative consulting to a dynamic custom campaign and post-project evaluation.

For the past decade, I’ve worked with storytellers, NGOs, brands, and academic experts to leverage incredible stories to catalyse change, with global partners like National Geographic, BBC, CITES, and NOAA. My research on impact and science communication has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the US Department of State, and numerous private philanthropies. I’ve been privileged to work on multi-award winning projects, including Emmy nominations, a Sundance Audience Choice winner, and a 2020 Peabody Nomination.

I often work as a Field Producer or Sound Recordist on location for our projects, garnering nuanced insights and building critical relationships upon which meaningful impact campaigns are built.
