Story Catching

Story Catching is the art of listening and recording the ideas, projects and innovations people are talking about and working on.  Story Catching takes place wherever people are gathering:events, conferences, festivals, celebrations.

Here’s what others say about my storycatching:
“Your work has been a remarkable contribution to understanding and sharing people’s dreams and aspirations. It has been a gift to be able to work with you over the past few years.”.. Budd Hall, Director of the Office of Community Based Research

“As an adjunct physics professor now at a technical college, I continue to find wisdom in what Chris has taught me about teaching–and people. The gift he brings is the keen recognition of and commitment to the fact everyone has a story, and that only in the telling of such stories do folks bring their respective strengths to the fore.

Chris is a multi-narrative innovator, who understands intimately that by fostering teachers in their pursuits of depth and creativity, communities in their entirety prosper.”
Larson Rogers, PhD.
Adjunct Physics Professor,
Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology
