I grew up with stories. Tales of Ireland, Wales, Japan, and the American South filled my childhood. They were stories of family, folktales from my family heritage, stories picked up in our travels as a military family, and historical accounts.  Time spent in Ireland, Wales, and Native American communities deepened my appreciation of storytelling traditions.  Judaism and Scottish Gaelic enriched it. I live in Baltimore with my wife who can accompany my stories on the harp, and I just enjoy sharing stories.

My repertoire focuses on Irish, Scottish, and Welsh poems and tales, also incorporating some Native American and Jewish folktales.

Need a storyteller for your festival, event, or family gathering? Call me.
