NICE TO MEET YOU
Hi, I'm Julie Watson
Founder of Senstoria
As a child, I was captivated by storytelling in all its forms, from books to TV shows. I vividly recall moments spent with Sesame Street in the morning and Saturday Night Live way past bedtime. These experiences taught me about the nuances of human emotions, and media helped me understand the world. This fascination with meaning in media inspired me to create Senstoria, where we delve into the 'what,' 'why,' and 'how' of our media relationships.
All of us at Sentoria are excited to support you in exploring your own unique connection with media.
