He’s also the host of “Four Peaks” (formerly “Media Space”)—the monthly Telly Award-winning UWTV series that features interviews with the region’s influential network of visionaries and leaders. He specializes in storytelling, social media strategies and business models of communication, serving as official advisor to Weber Shandwick, Tableau Software and the Pacific Science Center.

Hanson’s new book “Storyteller Uprising: Trust and Persuasion in the Digital Age,” is an ongoing study of effective 21st century communication through multiple platforms. His pioneering work earned him Seattle Magazine’s “Most Influential” in fall 2010, particularly due to his role in hosting TEDx Seattle.

Hanson directed the award-winning documentary films “Rising from Ruins” and “Independent America: The Two-Lane Search for Mom & Pop,” which have been broadcast around the world and prominently featured online, including on Hulu and Yahoo!‘s homepages.

As a former NBC News war correspondent, backpack journalist and investigative producer, he’s the recipient of Overseas Press Club and Emmy Awards. Hanson recently co-founded Four Peaks—a creative leadership network that will host a series of events over the next year in the Pacific Northwest.

He will lay out the vision for the “community design” of Four Peaks as guest Feature Editor of Arcade Magazine’s upcoming 30th anniversary issue on design and the built environment.
