Interested in an oral history of your family?

Need training materials for your employees?
Would you like a pop-up recording at your next event?
The Alternative Historian is a consulting service combining oral history methodology, historical thinking, and real-world experience to make life better. Does your company need training materials to help your employees talk to clients about sensitive subjects? Does your nonprofit need help creating a story about why it exists and what it does? Does your family want to preserve the stories that have been told a thousand times? I can help.
I'm a historian. I'm here to help.
I help corporations find and learn the hidden stories among their employees and their customers. Then I help you learn from these stories. This leads to better trained employees and a better connection to your customers.
I help nonprofit organizations find the hidden stories among their staff, board, and clients. You will learn how your mission is perceived, the impact you're having in the community, and the dreams for future work. You can use this information for training, curriculum development, and fundraising.
I help individuals learn more about their family and community. Through recording and analyzing shared experiences I can help you put your story into the historical record.
