About The Braided Lives Founder

Braided Lives was begun by Jena Ball (aka Jenaia Morane) as a way to bring people together to learn, create, and collaborate on projects that address the world's many and complex challenges.  Jena is a storyteller who applies her big picture thinking and multimedia skills to develop and execute large-scale projects. These skills include 25 years of professional writing and editing experience, 15 years designing and teaching online courses, 13 years working on immersive learning environments in 3D worlds, and another 12 years working as the Creative Director for a children's media property.

Jena looks for ways to work with those who think outside the box, work collaboratively, and aren't afraid to fail forward. She wants Braided Lives to be part of creating a more just and sustainable future for people and the planet.
