Jeffrey’s storyteller bio
Jeffrey works in technology by day and as professional percussionist (pugilist of drums) by night. He has survived many ordeals. His mechanic stole his car, the Eugene Police held him at gunpoint until he showed them his cookies, and a Czechoslovakian border guard with a submachine gun once demanded to see what he was playing on his AM/FM/cassette Walkman. Once a month, Jeffrey participates in storytelling battles, only to return home to his poetic wife and their brilliant daughters.
