I've been working as a contemporary storyteller for the last twenty one years. I believe that traditional stories well told have a richness of emotions and truths that are entertaining and relevant for people today.
32 years of performing in circus and theatre as a clown and ropewalker has given me the physical and performance skills and stage craft needed to entertain any audience. As a modern storyteller I mould traditional material to bring it alive and make it enjoyable and challenging for both children and adults.
My main work is in schools, encouraging children to read, running creative writing projects and teaching storytelling. I also collaborate with other storytellers and musicians to create shows and concerts throughout the UK.
I'm a traditional storyteller telling tales that delve to the roots of our imagination. When you listen you will see your world in a different light, and from a different place.
I live in Cardiff, South Wales.
