Dan is a retired military pilot who knows loads of stories and has lots of pictures, and he relishes storytelling. His problem was that he had loads of photos and a large scope of stories he wanted to cover from childhood, through his military career and into his professional and family life.
Soon after the birth of his first grandchild, his daughter-in-law gave him the gift of a grandpa book and asked him to provide answers to the question prompts within. In a short time, Dan knew he would never be able to adequately do the job of recording the depth of his stories, organizing the material, and selecting the right photos to do the project justice. Those grandchildren inspired Dan, and being mission-driven to “get it done right” is Dan’s Modus Operandi.
Dan kept telling me this was a big project, and he wasn’t kidding. We worked together for many sessions capturing his stories, scanning hundreds of photos, and then reviewing what was written to be sure we got his story details correct.
Dan is a natural storyteller and a great guy. We became friends over that time, and he truly enjoyed the process of capturing and chronicling his stories. Dan knew he had to work with a professional to organize, focus, and complete a book he’d be proud to share.
