Bio
I told my first story to a room filled with emotionally disturbed, adolescent boys. They began with their arms folded and sneers on their faces. A few seconds into the story, they fell into a listening trance.

That moment changed my life. I have been pursuing connection and transformation through storytelling, ever since.

Over the last 45 years, I have, among other things:

- Performed for all ages, from San Fransisco to Switzerland to Singapore;
- Authored 4 books, including <Improving Your Storytelling< and <The Storytelling Coach<;
- Performed on a score of solo storytelling recordings;
- Received awards for books and recordings;
- Created innovative forms of multi-media storytelling instruction, such as <The Storytelling Workshop in a Box<;
- Taught storytelling to scores of organizations, such as:
* NASA>s Jet Propulsion Lab
* The World Bank
* The Center for Creative Leadership
* MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)
- Served on the boards of NSN and other storytelling organizations.

I have coached many professional storytellers to:
* Improve their storytelling
* Discover their unique strengths
* Create recordings and other products, and/or
* Discover the joys of relationship-based marketing.

I have created six storytelling email newsletters, including over 140 issues of <eTips from the Storytelling Coach< (www.StorytellingNewsletters.com).

I live near Boston, Massachusetts with my wife, the Rev. Pam Mc
