Tell me a story and you’ll be my friend. Storytelling is my art and my passion. This inclination is in all of us. Mine derived from people of the land, farmers and tinkers, in my ancestors from Europe, Scandinavia, Great Britain, and Ireland. On both sides of my family, our roots began in Virginia.

My geological location is the Tidewater of Virginia. Ocean, wetland, bays and rivers. The early settlers navigated to regions in the Tidewater- the phrase “Hampton Roads” referring to its watery routes. Now bridges and tunnels connect highways but there is still Norfolk harbor, one of America’s oldest ports and a strategic site for the Navy’s warships, international trade vessels, yachts, and cruise boats. The land is rich and productive. My people were farmers here as early as the 1780s.
