Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
30-some years ago, a reviewer aptly described Jackson as a Stand-Up Chameleon, encapsulating his skills as a storyteller, comic, songsmith, sign language and movement artist. He has been Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center four times, and a featured teller at the national festival four times. Since 2000, he portrays Kipling at the author's historic VT home for an annual week-long residency. He also uses that inspiring site for his Springboards for Stories workshops, helping others develop and share their own personal stories. Those weekends and other unique workshops are described on his web site, along with his availability for private coaching. Known for his eccentric character work and comedy, he also enjoys using the quirks and quiet in daily life for grist in his storytelling. Much of his repertoire reflects his ecology background as he shares his perceptions of life, astute and askew. And when all is said and sung, it is apparent that there is an underlying foundation of beneficence, hope and spirit infusing his work.
