I've been involved with live shows for many years. Click on the images below to learn more information about ongoing shows and other special presentations.
As usual, this wasn’t your average book launch. Arlene Paculan provided the music, and I provided the storytelling. Weaving music, stories, video, and pictures, Arlene and I presented an event that told the narrative of how Dreams of Kiwi came to be. And yes, there were even kiwis.
Here are some videos and photographs of the launch. The first video is the movie trailer for LifeMan: Dreams of Being a Kiwi. A big Hollywood studio adapted the book into a film. Against my wishes, they turned the book into a superhero movie. The second is an edited version of the entire performance of the launch.
I started Stories We Don't Tell over three years ago with Brianne Benness and Stefan Hostetter. This live show is a monthly storytelling event that takes place in houses and apartments across Toronto.
What's it about?
Maybe you're thinking, "Well, this all sounds interesting, but what the hell is a live storytelling event?" Each show features new and seasoned performers sharing personal stories in front of the most engaging audience you'll find in the Toronto storytelling scene.
Can I tell a story or be in the audience?
I'm so glad you asked! To learn more about sharing a story at our event or when the next one is happening, here are some very handy interweb links for you: check out the Stories We Don't Tell Website or like our Facebook Page. We’re done for the season and will return in September 2019. Thank you to all our storytellers, hosts, and audiences.
Listen to the podcast.

The Walking Man launch event was a multi-media presentation with storytelling, music and video. And a treadmill. Yes, a treadmill. Written and performed by me with special musical guest Arlene Paculan. Click on the images below to watch the full event and other videos related to the production.
