Jerry Smith: A Southern Storyteller
Jerry is a native of Virginia who has had long stays in North Carolina, Florida and Ohio and is now back in Florida as a full-time resident of Winter Springs where he is semi-retired (translation: Do enough of something to stay out of the house to keep his marriage a harmonious one). Jerry’s southern voice serves him well as a storyteller. His stories might take you to Puerto Vallarta or the old west or simply to the mall or to his back yard but wherever you travel with him you’ll enjoy his southern twang and maybe even his view on things. Jerry is also a Distinguished Toastmaster and a past member of a couple of professional Storytelling Associations in Ohio such as the Storytellers of Central Ohio (SOCO) and the Ohio Order for the Preservation of Storytelling (O.O.P.S.) and he is a proud member of the Storytellers of Central Florida and the Florida Storytellers Association.
I tell mostly original tales based on personal experiences and a Southern heritage. Stories range from humorous to inspirational with a few original tales. My audiences are adults of all ages within community, business and church venues.
