Bobby Stoddard lives high in the hills of Vermont with his wife and children. When not obsessing over skiing and mountain biking, Bobby is a builder. He specializes in repurposing antique barns, turning them into homes, studios and furniture, among other reincarnations. The bulk of his work over the last five years has been constructing, from scratch, all of the buildings for Zeno Mountain Farm, a camp for people with disabilities in Lincoln, Vermont. Included at the camp are two wheelchair accessible tree houses and an 1850s railroad freight building repurposed as a theatre. Both he and his wife have long been fanatical travelers in the backpacker spirit. They continue this lifestyle, only now with their two small children in tow and a slightly more discerning eye. Bobby is a longtime listener of The Moth who made the leap to storyteller when he drove five hours from Vermont to New York City and threw his name in the hat at a sold-out StorySLAM. He is also a national and world champion ultimate Frisbee player.
