Meet April Bell

What's your story?

Beginning her career in media production in the early 1990s, April is passionate about Legacy Storytelling. She gently guides people to tap into the essence of who they truly are, capturing that on video.

Her work is deeply appreciated by her clients and has been featured in The New York Times, The Contra Costa Times, and Lamorinda Weekly.

The daughter of a mobile tech pioneer and an artist, April is enlivened by assisting others in creatively communicating their stories through technology.

Trained in psychology, she has acute listening skills and is a natural at deeply connecting with people, helping them share the narratives which matter most, be it life stories, the origin story of a family business, or glowing testimonials. Her clients include businesses, families, and organizations who value the power of story.

She is an innovator in bringing video storytelling via an interview-style format to the masses through the co-creation and launch of StoryCatcher for iOS in 2013.

April also brings the transformative gift of legacy storytelling to the world at large through speaking, workshops, and engaging online training courses.

For fun she enjoys sailing on the San Francisco Bay,

“Everything I do, I believe in expanding love and connection in people’s lives, their relationships, and their communities. I do this by helping people tell and share their personal stories.” ~April Bell

trekking in the High Sierra, and exploring the mysteries of the human spirit and condition. Ultimately, it is our stories that connect and bind us, today and into the future.
