a virtual storytelling & personal growth workshop to help you understand and share your story
* brought to you by the creators of True Theatre and Breadcrumb Tales

Reflect on the stories of your life
Identify key turning points
Reframe challenges into shareable stories
Find greater meaning and purpose

Dr. Dave Stefan
After more than a decade as a therapist, career coach, and college professor, Dr. Dave formed a production company and set out on an extended global expedition; working and living in 20 states and 12 countries on six continents, he fulfilled a vocation exploration project called “12 Months to Live”.
He drafted a life list framed by the question, “What would I do if I had 12 months to live?” and then mapped out a series of adventures. Each month for a year, Dave experimented with a new career or personal passion: he worked with the United Nations World Food Program in Nepal, walked alone into the Cascade Wilderness for a three day/three night solo fast vision quest, and shot an adventure film while trekking up Everest.
After completing his circumnavigation of the globe, he launched a new adventure – helping others dream up, design and complete their own Come Alive Projects. Dr. Stefan has also published positive psychology research on resilience, the impact of gratitude on well-being, and meaning and purpose.
Dave can trace his love for storytelling all the way back to riding in the rear seat of his family car while his parents played Harry Chapin on the 8-track. He is fond of the traditional forms of storytelling (fables, cautionary tales, and other fiction), but is particularly interested in factual, auto-biographical tales like those you hear on The Moth podcast or by such greats as the late Spalding Gray ("Monster in a Box," etc.) and the on-time Mike Birbiglia ("Sleepwalk With Me").
As is true with everything he loves, he wants to share it with others who he hopes will love it, too. That was his motivation behind partnering with Jeff Groh to create True Theatre. David has lived in Cincinnati since 1992 and, when he's not programming computers or enjoying time with his teenage son, he is preparing and delivering speeches as part of one of his Toastmasters clubs or involved in the local theatre scene, telling stories via a different medium as both an actor and sound designer.
