Vaccinated and ready to show up in-person or "virtually"

Zoom • Google Hangouts • Skype • Facebook Live and more

"I recently hired Mark for a storytelling performance and due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the performance was moved online, as a virtual storytelling event. Mark quickly and easily adapted to the new environment. He made use of the many Zoom features which helped to keep the audience engaged and interacting. He told some of his own stories as well as classics. Each story was told uniquely and vividly with great expression and annunciation. His storytelling expertise was evident by the way the children’s faces glowed with bright smiles and wide eyes as they watched their screens to listen and watch Mark tell his tales."
– North Hampton Public Library, NH

"Joy can be created and transmitted in a moment.  Stories transcend cultures and boundaries. 
Storytelling bridges generations and connect diverse audiences.   Best of all, stories are vivid, visceral — and fun." 
– Mark Binder
