I have been a professional storyteller for 25 years. Telling stories to people of all ages and in many differing venues. I learnt my skills as a primary school teacher and later as a museum education officer. For ten years I was a resident storyteller aboard the historic warship, HMS Warrior in Portsmouth harbour and for five years ran a storytelling club in Ringwood. I have developed a humorous and Interactive style of storytelling, often incorporating, props, puppets and music.
My performances appeal to a wide range of ages and audiences.
Semi-retired now, I am interested in developing my storytelling with older people but will still occasionally work with young audiences. I live with my family in Fordingbridge. I joined AVDS as a volunteer in the summer of 2018.
