About Me

In 1998, I discovered the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh and began my "apprenticeship" in the art of oral storytelling while teaching at the Edinburgh Rudolf Steiner School. In 2005, I decided to leave teaching and combine my previous roles as a mental health counsellor, teacher, and musician into a full-time storyteller. For more than fifteen years, I have worked with young people, adults, community and corporate groups across the U.K. Europe, the Middle East, and Canada. I believe strongly in the old Traveller proverb that stories are told "eye to eye, mind to mind, and heart to heart."

"Moved by your heartwarming story. Loved the way you narrated. Thank you so much for sharing such insightful information on storytelling."

"The coaching has allowed a level of personal growth within myself that I did not even know possible, much to the happiness of my loved ones."
