I've been telling stories from 2013 when it was love at first listen. I trained with Nell Phoenix and have done workshops with Ben Haggarty of the Crick Crack Club. I tell stories from everywhere but I have a particular passion for ones about bold women, wide open spaces and mice who bring balance to the world.
You can find me MC ing and telling at Story Jam, the night I co-run. See more here
I've told stories at the Wellcome Collection, Newbury Corn Exchange, Art in Action Festival, the Fireside Festival, Kew Gardens and at storytelling nights across the UK.
My repertoire includes stories of 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 minutes.
I'm also a member of Wild Company, a collaboration between Story Jam and the Crick Crack Club dedicated to exploring the archetype of the Wild Man and Woman and what it means for us here and now. We produce performance events that combine storytelling, community choirs and wild, costumed beings. See our pilot production from earlier this year on youtube
For Young People and Schools
I tell stories in primary and secondary schools across London. You can find me telling Greek and Roman myths for the The Latin Programme and I've told stories from all over the world for the National Literacy Trust and Half Moon Theatre.
I also have a diploma in teaching English to speakers of other languages and use that in conjunction with storytelling to build language awareness and confidence for students learning English.
