The Magic of Storytelling
We humans are natural storytellers and telling "our own" story has historically been a way to survive.
They say a great teacher is a natural storyteller, but I believe we can all learn the art of telling a story effectively, in writing as well as live in front of others.
I enjoy storytelling as a craft, and have told stories to small and large audiences in the U.S and abroad, as well as produced storytelling events.

I've told several stories at Speak Up and also taken storytelling workshops with the indomitable Matthew Dicks, who is something like a 38-times winner of the Moth Grand Slam...Simply da best teacher ever!
