Telling our stories

Words, Camera, Action!

I use words, images and video to tell the tales. From little old ladies in the altogether to toxic waste.

Don't forget bicycle history!

Author of Fitchburg: the old hometown

Our slice of times lies on top of all the past slices. What we see today is just one layer. What we saw as children is always there, shaping our present. These layers, going back in time, form the structure of our community. Fitchburg, 

Massachusetts thrived until the mid-20th century and the former industrial powerhouse is looking to reinvent itself for the 21st century.
