I am a teacher, writer, TEDx speaker, and documentarian. I have a PhD in counseling and have taught at universities on both coasts and several places in between. These days, I mostly listen to stories. Since 2014, I've interviewed and created oral histories with nearly 70 veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. The stories are coming together in book form, and I'm completing a Certificate in Documentary Arts at Duke University. But, really, I do it out of love. Love for a veteran grandfather who never spoke of what he saw, and love for the beauty and resilience of the human race.
