True, you are truly a gifted Master of Ceremonies. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for your skill at personalizing each and every introduction to the storytellers in the final concert for the annual Southern California Storyswap in May, 2004. Your spontaneity and commentary about each teller’s background and story delighted the entire audience. You made the performing storytellers feel comfortable, and supported, like we are all part of a wonderful family. I was amazed by the way in which you tied in everything and also organized and managed the entire final concert. Your timing and performance were impeccable. I cannot recommend you highly enough as both MC and performing artist. You are truly gifted. – Jody Hoelle, Redlands, CA, 909-798-7945 www.jodyhoelle.net
