Thank you for visiting my storytelling site. I hope that you will find videos and my written stories entertaining, heartwarming and memorable.

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. 1

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 many venues in the Northeastern USA. Many of my five CDs have won a national storytelling award.

1 I first heard storyteller Liz Weir say the expression "eye to eye, mind to mind, heart to heart" on Season Two, Episode 10 of Conversations with Storytellers, a podcast by Simon Brooks. Liz was quoting her uncle.
