Hi Everyone,

Sorry I didn’t get the thank you/wrap-up message out this month. I’m hip-deep in a big video storytelling project that I’m spending 12-hour days on. It’s gratifying but exhausting.

But I’ll be ready for our show next Thursday! The theme is “Escape – Stories of breaking free.”


I also want to share two events with you. The first is a storytelling event called “Community Speaks: Frames of Mind”. It’s a mental health show from the South Asian community. One of the people facilitating the event is Abhishek Kulkarni, a man I met when I hosted NAMI’s Brainpower Chronicles last year. He’s a wonderful storyteller and will be sharing stories with us at FGS soon.

The other event is 7 Stories in Burien. We’ve had a number of FGS folks tell at this show and you’ve seen 7 Stories people tell at our show. Their next show is Friday, May 26 at 7pm. The theme is “Disconnecting. Unplugging. Uncoupling.”

Email them at 7stories@burienculturehub.org for more info.


I hope you’re all having a great week. I’m off to Spokane for a few days to record more people sharing stories of their lives. I wouldn’t have gotten this opportunity if someone hadn’t come to our show, seen what we do, and asked me to be a part of it. So keep telling stories and asking others to share theirs. It can lead you to great places.

See you on the 18th!
