KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.

In 1988, Tim Cleary was working as a consultant for a religious publishing house. He had a heart for the work and saw helping others as a vocation so he threw himself into it. But after an especially taxing 18-month assignment, something shifted.

One day in September, Cleary and his family were driving home from a conference after an especially long week of work.

Tim Cleary is the co-founder of Elevate Phoenix.

Join Arizona Storytellers for their next night of live storytelling on Oct. 26, 2015, at Skyline, the Rooftop Patio at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel.
