About

Throughout history, we have witnessed the power of the written word as a form of expression to invoke change, inspire leaders, and educate the world. As humans, we thrive on creating emotional connections through the telling of our oral histories.

Conversational storytelling has evolved to include a broad spectrum of mediums. In every instance, either with words or visual images presents an opportunity to create an indelible impression, a bookmark if you will, in the minds of your audience.

Allow me to help you make yours.

singing silver bells

Mr. Finn Fridays. Sofa snuggles, lots of purrs. Blue eyes, ginger fur. His whiskers so white, frame his face of tiger stripe, apricot-tipped ears. Siamese flamepoint, wearing his warm winter coat, singing silver bells.
