Thank you for visiting my storytelling site.
Many people find my stories entertaining, heartwarming and memorable. I hope that
you will too. For me, storytelling combines the intensity of a one person play with the intimacy of a one-on-one conversation.
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, including:
my five CDs have won a national storytelling award.

I am also a producer of storytelling events:
I have also created and maintain these web sites:
- Americans All of Us
A Storytellerís Toolkit for Troubled Times
- Storytelling -- It's News
Summaries of hundreds of articles, published since 2003, which demonstrate how storytelling is being used as an effective communications tool around the world.

A silly joke:
Do you know why you should NOT tell a long story to an irritated knitter?
She won't be interested in your yarn.
She'll just needle you with pointed comments...
(an original joke by me)
