Jeff Polish – MM ProjectJeff Polish, Founder and Executive Director of The Monti

Jeff knew that he loved the power of storytelling from the time he was a little kid. Professionally, he earned a doctorate in genetics and taught high school science for many years. But “there was always this thing at my core and that thing was the telling of stories and listening to stories…it was the way to close the distance between me and anyone that I was conversing with.” Here, Jeff tells his story of founding The Monti, a community storytelling organization.
