Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 6 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  


Guess what I did yesterday? I went to Apollo Middle School to find out about the Grow2BFit program here in Tucson. What a cool family program! Parents and kids learned a lot about healthy eating and then they get to do exercises together. Whew! I don’t know how everyone keeps up with Dr. Jessica Schultz who founded this fun program. She is full of pep and really excited about helping kids make healthy choices. Everyone who came got a pedometer, a jump ropes and “Chop Chop,” a fun cooking magazine for families. There were lots of door prizes, too. I didn’t get one yesterday, but I have my eye on one of the exercise videos (maybe next month when we meet again). Anyway, if you want to know more about this really great program, just check out their website:
