I have an extensive repertoire of traditional folktales and historical stories, and am frequently commissioned to create site-specific original stories.
I work with many of the major names in the cultural sector – from the British Museum and the National Gallery to Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. I have also collaborated on storytelling projects with everyone from the University of Utrecht to the Royal Society of British Architects, the National Literacy Trust to English Heritage.
In addition to telling stories, I work extensively on storytelling projects with adults and children who have special educational needs or disabilities. I also devise and lead storytelling and story-making workshops for people of all ages.
