Thank you for visiting my storytelling site.
I hope that you will find
videos and my

People sometimes ask me why I am a storyteller. One of the reasons is that I love the dance between story, teller and listener. When I am telling a story, I get to watch my audience's faces reacting, and I get to hear their sighs and their laughter and their silences. The power of story connects us
eye to eye,
mind to mind,
heart to heart.
As an award-winning
author and storyteller
(I won the
Story Slam at the 2010 National Storytelling Conference in Los Angeles,) I specialize in
telling true stories about people who made a difference.
Since 1995, I've told stories at
in the Northeastern USA.
my five CDs have won a national storytelling award.
