Telling Stories

I give interactive storytelling performances of traditional stories from many cultures suitable for preschool and primary school aged children.


I have delivered workshops and professional development for various groups and organisations. My workshops are pacey, engaging and productive being informed by my background in history, education and working with social disadvantage.


I develop stories for specific occasions and purposes; past clients include The Australian Centre for Social Innovation, Avenues of Honour, The Art Gallery of SA, and speech pathologists.
