I've been telling stories since 2013. 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.
The Flaming Queen: 55 minutes, currently touring. A wonder tale about desire, naughty dogs and what getting what you want can cost.
Audience feedback for The Flaming Queen:
"A brilliant lesson in storytelling and how to engage the audience. Really, really enjoyed it. Thanks."
"Riveting - so well told, utterly entertaining. A great evening, thank you."
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.
