After high school life changed. I served a two year mission in England for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon returning I joined the US Navy as a hospital corpsman serving in Viet Nam and the States for six years.  I worked my way through San Francisco State University (BS in Biology, 1976) as a paramedic for the City and County of San Francisco Medical Emergency Service. At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where I worked for 28 years, I did research on a variety of projects  including leading the “Fun With Science” program, which took science experiments and stories into the East Bay, Tri-Valley and Central Valley schools. Included in this was my starring in and producing a weekly science television series for the Bakersfield School District’s migrant education program.

    In 1994 I was introduced to formal storytelling, which struck a chord with me. I knew it was something I wanted to pursue. I have been telling stories ever since!

    In January, 2011  I became the National Storytelling Network (NSN)  State Liaison for Northern California (draw a line just South of Sacramento and go North, 26 counties).

    I love to share the excitement and thrill of story with listeners of all ages.  Contact me to learn more.

    Growing up in Albuquerque was wonderful. There were always things for a kid to do and to discover. There was time to be active and time to lie on the grass and watch the clouds go by and make up stories about the images I saw. All my life I heard stories in my family and in our social life. Stories are a big thing for the LDS people.
