Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 4 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  

 

Here’s a scientific experiment you can make at home so you can hear what your heart sounds like. Believe it or not, a doctor’s stethoscope works a lot like this homemade listening device.

Here’s what you need to collect for this experiment:

* A plastic funnel (about 2″ across)
* A piece of “press and seal wrap” big enough to cover the wide end of the funnel. (You can also use a balloon: first blow up the balloon, let the air out and then cut off the neck of the balloon.)
* Tape
* Plastic tubing (close in size to tightly cover the narrow end of the funnel and long enough to reach from your ear to your chest)
