Clint’s vision is “connecting stories and people.” He combines this vision with his talents as a Distinguished Toastmaster and his more than twenty-five years of practical leadership experience. The result? The creation of Storytelling Connections. The mission of Storytelling Connections is to enhance people’s lives by entertaining audiences with stories, educating people to tell their stories, and expanding storytelling traditions. Clint first became interested in storytelling after attending Sounds of the Mountains Storytelling Festival in 2018. Since then he has successfully produced Tellabration! Roanoke Valley and World Storytelling Day events. Working with other VASA members he co-founded, Let Me Tell Ya! a monthly family-friendly Moth-style story swap. Clint is excited to be serving on the Virginia Storytelling Alliance Board of Directors.
