For too many years, Storytelling has been misunderstood as stuffy and dull, the image of someone         sitting in a musty room reading from old books to a bored audience.


The tradition of Oral Storytelling is so much more (for one we don't read, its all from our heads) it's impossible to describe, it is a craft you need to hear in action. So the only thing I can do is invite you on this journey with me. Come along to an event I'm performing at or book me for an event you are putting on. 


                        "Storytelling is an amazing craft, filled with energy and emotion. To be able to transport your audience                                 across the world on a magic carpet, or to come face to face with terrifying giants, how about finding                                 yourself on the front line of an epic historical battle. That's what storytelling is, and that's what it can do.

 It will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions, love, loss, fear, anger and jubilation."

I have been fortunate to have told stories in a wealth of locations from libraries, schools,

community centers, public houses, theaters, festivals, on the streets and in distant lands in such places as

the ancient Redwood Forests in California and have loved every minute of every experience.

"It’s clear he’s bent on history, but his passionate explanation of the 19th-century rotten landlords and the characters who stalked the city’s nefarious bygone, slum-filled era makes it feel like it were happening today."
