There’s nothing like creating those savory round-the-campfire moments with friends and good stories. A former coach to public speakers, I experiment with storytelling, a little truth, and playfulness on video, audio, and offline stages (day gig is helping two incredible pastors at Foundry UMC). Home is with husband Sean in Washington, DC.

Do you love the joy and art of storytelling, speechmaking, and the pathway of connection they create with others?!

That’s the conversation here on the blog:
…sharing, practicing, and testing all gamuts of storytelling from onstage principles to structure of message and narrative to on-camera energy & technique. At the heart of sharing here though is the pure fun of how stories come to be, and spark us to relate.
