Wisdom Is In Our Stories And In Our Stars...

Hello and Welcome, 

I love stories and I love to share them... in a personal, engaging way.

For the younger folk and itty bitties, I follow a formula that includes and allows for greater visual cues, physical interaction, and other appropriate elements.

But I can also tone things down with soft lights and quieter, soothing, rhythmic talk -- still expressive -- for those who enjoy a softer experience.

I am happy to work with special needs....

And I love to tell to adults....

For the mature folks, stories run the gamut, but include those that call out memories and feelings. 

Often a bit of history and perspective is woven into the tales.  Many stories are cathartic.  People need that.  It connects them.

And, sometimes, I add music and other wonderful little nuances to my performances.

Please contact me to tell stories at your next event. Sharing stories is our path to understanding. 

Find out more. Contact me today.

Our language is our culture.  Our culture is our stories. Stories connect us.   They show us who we are.  They give us power. They make us one.
