"I was delighted with the crowd you were able to draw, children and grownups alike. You did an especially good job of involving and engaging your audience--getting them to sing with you or act out certain parts of the stories. The show was fun to watch and even more fun to participate in!" Jennifer Michael, Ph.D., Traditional Arts Coordinator, Museum of Natural History, San Francisco, CA.

"Your 'Story of the Universe' was beautiful. The entire audience was completely enchanted and mesmerized. It was exciting to have the planetarium effects complimenting your words so effectively. The entire presentation simply flowed, and rather than a lecture or even our usual storytelling, it resembled a poetic planetarium show." Tinka Ross, Series Coordinator, Morrison Planetarium, San Francisco, CA.
