“A latter-day Thoreau, man in search of peace in a world gone mad.” Seven Days Magazine
“He is a poet and storyteller who masterfully weaves his craft to create a space for his audience to disarmingly engage in a child-like way that enabled me to slip into another soothing, healing world. Let his stories and music take you away.” J. Knowlton, Director Manchester, VT Library.
