My goal as a living historian is to provide a taste of a by gone era and a sense of our nation's greatest struggle.
If you would like to schedule a visit at your senior living center, library, historical reenactment, school, or elsewhere within the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area, I hope you will contact me.
Since my childhood, I have been an admirer of the Sixteenth American President, known as the Great Emancipator. Born in the original county of Jefferson Davis' birth in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, I made stops throughout my youth at Abraham Lincoln's birthplace near Hodgenville, Kentucky whenever our family visited the region. I'm not sure why I liked to visit so often, but it seemed like a quiet, serene place.
yet the story doesn't end here ...
After earning my college degree and growing a beard in 1991, I began to be teased about my actual resem-blance to the former President. My destiny as a presenter then seemed to be written in the stars. Over a decade later, I began developing a speech dressed in character as Lincoln, which I presented on July 4th, 2003. The following year, I joined the Association of Lincoln Presenters and became a lifetime member of that organization.
I portray President Lincoln in the first person for all age groups. Throughout the years, I have visited senior living centers, schools, battle fields, libraries, and more.
A few of President Abraham Lincoln's philosophies of life:
"I have an irrepressible desire to know that the world will be a little bit better off for I have lived in it.'
"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds they want to be."
"He has a right to criticize who has a heart to help."
"Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves."
