What have you been up to since you graduated from Redwood?

In 2015, I published two books: "Storytelling: Storytelling: How to Write an Inspiring Memoir, Oral History, or Family Genealogy" and "First to Die: The Tragic Sinking of the Steamship Vestris."
My career path took me into journalism as the "Question Man" for the San Francisco Chronicle ('72-'95) and history columnist for The Reporter in Vacaville ('95-'00). As the Oral Historian for the Vacaville Museum I oversaw a project resulting in exhibit and book, "Solano's Gold: The People and Their Orchards."
In '91, I started an oral history career publishing family and company histories. In 2015, former Chronicle investigative reporter, Duffy Jennings, became my writing partner. We do video oral histories, narrative writings and publishing for memoirs, company histories and family stories.
