Connor McMullen - Storytelling Scientist
Connor is the resident millennial at DISC, who is always pushing the boundaries of how technology and stories can come together. Connor has lived, worked and studied as an expat for ten years in Germany, India, and The Netherlands. He began the journey as an aersospace engineering, coordinating project teams and designing processes and components for the automotive and aerospace industry. Feeling like he wanted to be part of something bigger, Connor spent two years in TU Delft’s Engineering and Policy Analysis program, studying how to combine qualitative and quantitative analysis methods to the wicked problems the world faces.
His thesis combined system dynamics and storyteller, testing how various forms of communication deliver messages about complex problems to the audience. Since then he has worked as analyst and storyteller in Netherlands and beyond, helping people and organisations better understand their own stories and how to share them. He most often works in the wonderful world of mythology and spontaneous storytelling, and especially loves to design, host, and play storytelling games.
