Introduction Born an army brat in El Paso Texas, yet raised in high suburban Westchester County, I grew up on Tall Tales and day dreams. Now, I work full time as a professional children's storyteller. Traveling through the Hudson Valley, New York,and occasionally beyond, I perform at schools,festivals, historic sites and libraries. Listen to samples of my stories on CD Baby. You'll see clips somber and silly on youtube, but don't confuse me with the former baseball player with a similar name. My book "Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley" reveals the origins of Washington Irving's headless horseman and the sources of the ghosts appearing in his "Legend" from around this region.
