Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I was once a respectable historian of the Russian Empire until I turned to a life of storytelling. Now I coordinate storytelling programs highlighting the traditional tales of Central Asia at the Silk Road House in Berkeley, and perform folktales from the heart of Asia for adults and children alike.
I have not entirely lost touch with my scholarly roots, as I translate stories from the region into English and explore how the tales put down roots in Kazakh and Georgian culture.
