About Me


My first public storytelling performance was in a redwood grove amphitheater on Earth Day in 1990. My repertoire consists of multicultural folk and fairy tales about sun, moon, spider, ocean, turtle, strawberries, humans and others.

The stories will tell you about buzzard's bravery, squirrel's generosity, the adventures of a boy riding a dragon and the wisdom of a girl's dream.

I also love to tell creation myths about how the first rainbow appeared, why some trees stay green, why sun and moon live in the sky, how night came from the sea and many others.

My stories encourage listeners to participate and my performances are often enhanced by props, poetry, song and sign language.

My focus in storytelling includes the Universe Story, Creation Myths, Star and Earth Stories, and others. Get in touch with me today. I perform in the San Francisco Bay Area and Nationwide.

In 1987, I moved from my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana to the San Francisco Bay Area. In California, I received a MA in Spirituality and Eco-Justice from The Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality at Holy Names College in Oakland and a Certificate in Storytelling from Dominican College in San Rafael. I hold a BA in Education from St. Marys College in Indiana and Life Teaching License in Elementary and Special Education.
