January’s storytellers include:
Taylor Bailey, with a musical theater background, is no stranger to performing. Working in sales by day, he excels at making authentic connections with clients through his passionate storytelling. Watch him showcase his skills on Odyssey’s stage with other outstanding performers. His Inner Monologue (or lack thereof) will surely be a wild ride!
By day, Steven Braun is a 911 communications center supervisor. After hours, he loves to put on his storytelling hats and has been with Odyssey Storytelling since 2014, sharing stories, curating, and producing. Most recently, Steven has taken on recording shows and hosting the Odyssey Storytelling Podcast (https://odysseystorytelling.libsyn.com/). Other hobbies include writing, photography, and practicing electric bass, which he took up last year as part of his pursuit to never stop learning.
Christina Early, a self-proclaimed desert rat, moved to Tucson from Houston, Texas, with her husband, Steve, in 1990. She and Steve owned and operated two restaurants in downtown Tucson over a 12-year period in the early 2000s. She is currently board chair of Iskashitaa Refugee Network, where her joy is helping to build community with a diverse group of people. She’s been known to talk to anyone, friends, family, or strangers for long periods of time!
Kristina Macholtz loves telling a good story or two. She’s worked various jobs around town and dabbled in an improv class or two at Unscrewed Theater. She began telling stories with Female Storytellers in 2022 and now might be addicted to telling stories on stage. Kristina thanks you all for being such wonderful enablers.
Czarina Nafarrate is an Arizona native who grew up in Nogales, AZ. An avid storyteller, Czarina first came to Tucson to pursue a degree in journalism (and French) at the University of Arizona and has called it home ever since. She has always been fond of putting pen on paper and performing on a stage and is currently a content editor by day AND an improviser at Tucson Improv Movement by night. She spends her days listening to true crime podcasts and begging for cuddles from her pup, Nikolaj.
