I have been fortunate in my life to have been raised by a family of gifted story tellers. They taught me that a good story is not always perfect but always remembered and often retold.

With a rich history from Tennessee, Missouri and now New York the stories that I bring to the reader and listener encompass a world of folklore, tall tales, bedtime fables and fibs. Interspersed with facts and figures, that may or may not be true.

My stories of Whale in the Hudson and My Roommate is a Hippo are now completed.  In the upcoming months, I will be posting several new stories to accompany those shown.


Ideas benefit from a core understanding of how to creatively develop concepts, work with problems and divergent groups. Ideas created within these groups are vital to both the public and private sectors. I work in both of these sectors with interesting and talented people in the nonprofit, profit, health care, and corporate communities. I help my clients understand their needs, create new content and develop their programs.

Work has allowed me to bring ideas to fruition as varied as developing distance-learning labs, media departments for publishers, and development of new publishing models merging new technologies.

Publishing credits include international textbook publishers, national and international magazines, newspapers, greeting cards and art books. Media projects include those for United States Military Academy at West Point, Elsevier Health Sciences and Pearson Education. I have developed Day in the Life projects for the St. Louis United Way, Hospice Homecare documentary for Lutheran Medical Center in STL, to most recently podcasts profiling performers from the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie, NY for Backstage with the Bardavon with Jode Millman.
