Storyteller Bios: 

Shefali Milczarek-Desai, an Arizonan since age 3, is a writer who has taken scenic detours into lawyering and mothering. Shefali's writing has appeared in This Bridge We Call Home, Edible Baja Arizona, Sojourner, Inland Shores, The UCLA Women's Law Journal, and The Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law. She also writes a bi-monthly column on food and parenting for The Food Conspiracy Co-op's Community News. Amidst the chaos of raising two, young, energetic boys, Shefali sometimes daydreams about her perfect day, which would include a hike in the Chiricahua mountains followed by cooking in a kitchen free of children and recipes, and after enjoying a meal with her family, curling up with a good science fiction novel.

Jeff Clashman is an educator at The Gregory School in words and stories in English and Latin.  Also, he coaches the minds and bodies of students in the gym and the field.  Jeff helps the students take care of goats, chickens and bunnies in a farmyard and green plants in a garden.  In his free time Jeff does all the same things with his family, Lorie, Ryan and John Henry.  His pushes the spreading of pleasures like Italy, soccer, and gelato on his dear friends.

Storytelling is a way to make connections with diverse and different people that you may not meet in your every day life. Because these stories are from our lives they may be amazing, messy, enlightening, disturbing, and entertaining . . . and more.


Six invited storytellers have ten minutes to talk about a specific theme. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
