Sleep. It Eludes Me.

Join Us!

I spent 25 years in the wrong profession. What made me leave? I wish I could say that I left them wanting more after Jesus spoke  me in a dream… But the truth is, I have always espoused to the gritty. God knew I would never leave unless He made it impossible for me to stay. I so began a season of transition with a good dose of depression and marital discord folded in.  This is my story.

Mari Sandifer Speaker

I am a writer, speaker, and digital storyteller. I spent 20 years in the wrong profession for the wrong reasons. You can read more about that HERE.

In 2016, came across a link to the New York Times Article Snowfall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek by John Branch. It was the first time I heard the term “digital storytelling”, and it changed my life. In 2017 I founded Storycast Network, a marketing agency that specializes in digital storytelling through website design, film production, and the publication of multi-media online articles.

In 2019 I founded The Jacksonville Foundation, a 501(3) non-profit that celebrates neurodiversity. Our inaugural event, Jacksonville's Night of Cabaret was held on November 5, 2019. My first book, Jacksonville: One Mother’s Journey to the Autism Spectrum, was published in 2020 and tells the story of my son, Jack, who is on the autism spectrum. My passion is sharing stories of redemption and resilience across digital platforms. My blog, Mental Badassery, and my podcast, Clusterduck, do just that. I believe strongly that stories breed hope, and hope is everything.

I live in Carmel, Indiana with my husband of 26 years, Ed, my children Betsy and Jack, and 2 bichons, Charlotte and Dash. I enjoy community theatre, photography, creating timelapse videos, and watching/making documentaries. I just bought a set of drums.
