Tell Us Something Executive director Marc Moss was professionally trained as an English educator, certified in 1995 to teach English 7-12 in the state of Ohio. He went on to teach in the world’s best classroom, Yellowstone National Park, as a seasonal ranger-naturalist from 1999-2001, telling the stories of the geothermals there, the ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the historical Fort Missoula. He fell in love with storytelling listening to garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion on long drives with his dad as a kid. Upon Arriving in Missoula, he experienced formal personal storytelling for the first time at a live storytelling event at the PEAS Farm, and has been cultivating personal storytelling in Missoula in some fashion ever since. He brings his expertise in storytelling to recruiting storytellers and to the story coaching workshops that he requires of each storyteller before each Tell Us Something event.
