Drawing on the rich, oral tradition of storytelling from all over the world, I help people of all ages to see themselves in the characters of the stories I tell.
Stories have always been a powerful medium because they speak to us in the rich language of the imagination. The images we imagine while listening to stories stay in our hearts and minds long after the story is over. Stories remind us of the universal experience of being human and connect us to others across time, generations and cultures.
My storytelling is interactive, educational, and fun, and I can tweak my tales and my style to meet the needs of any size event for any type of audience, adults included! I have created programs for school assemblies, classrooms, camps, birthday parties, and gatherings of all kinds.
