The Spice Of Life

They say variety is the spice of life.

Back in October I had the pleasure of being a part of a variety show here in Charlotte North Carolina. called Chevy Does Charlotte.

A Performance Video (of sorts)

This past weekend I had the honor of sharing the stage with seven very talented storytellers. The stories told ran the gamut from silly, to strange, to deep.

So, please invest the nine minutes it will take to watch the video, and pass it along to anyone who you think will appreciate the message.
