storytelling for

and neverquitters

We are the Changemakers.

Long hours, sleepless nights. “Restless now to find comfort later” is what we tell ourselves. Just to realize – there’s still a helluva lot of work that needs to be done to create a brighter future.

We are the neverquitters.

We’ve been jumping over fences since we were kids. Our parents told us not to but we did it anyways. The status quo is just another fence to hop over.

We are
the problem solvers ๐Ÿค”
the big thinkers ๐Ÿง ,
the hamsters that got off the wheel ๐Ÿน

We earn our beer ๐Ÿป at the end of a long day. It’s not a right after 10-hours of breathing. Weekends are moments of serenity ๐Ÿ˜Œ because breaks can feel rare. But we love what we’re doing for the world ๐ŸŒ.

We are the unconventional ๐Ÿฆฅ. We are the weird ones ๐Ÿฆ„. People question our methods but also turn to us for answers.

Even when the answer is no answer ๐Ÿšซ.

Because they know it’s only momentary for us โฒ. We’ll keep that problem simmering on the back burner of our minds until we find the solution… or we create the solution ourselves ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ.

Cliches are played out – like saying ๐Ÿ—ฃ”cliches are played out”. But to breathe a breath of fresh air ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ and achieve newfound heights ๐Ÿฆ…, one must bury the hatchet ๐Ÿช“.

๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ Looking to the past for lessons, we look around in the present for solutions – directed towards a hopeful future ๐Ÿงญ.

This guides us to create a new narrative; exploration starts here ๐Ÿ“.

My name is Jonathan Chan-Choong, my friends call me JCC. Since you’re reading this, you can call me JCC too ๐Ÿค.

I am a brand strategist, copywriter, and poet – but that’s just the way I uncover the deeper story of things ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

In another lifetime, I was probably a painter ๐Ÿ–Œ
Before that, perhaps a harmonizing cicada ๐Ÿฆ—

By working with businesses and organizations that are transforming the world – through the arts, activism, sustainable goods, and equitable services – I’m continuing our story for another generation ๐ŸŒฑ.

Stamped in the timelines of history are those that did something and those that were forgotten.

Which side are you on?
