Profile Information

Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I come from a family of storytellers and only realised the value of stories when my daughter was born. I wanted here to fully appreciate her African heritage while living in Scotland and the only way to do that is through stories and song.

Scottish International Storytelling Festival

Mid way through the festival and it has been an inspiring few days. The theme was Eastern Routes and we have had storytellers from as far afield as Thailand, Singapore and China. I am always amazed at the different styles and techniques used by the storytellers, in the most surprising ways. The Ramayana in 15minutes is a definite feat. Also to meet Kamini who I was not able to get in touch with while in Singapore earlier this year was a real treat.
Long may it continue.

Singapore ACE festival

A very beautiful time with some incredible people. What an honour it is to be able to enjoy the world and make the most of it's wonderful places and people. Received so nicely despite slight anxiety at cancelled flights - volcanic ash and strikes. Ah well .... Everyone in festival was amazing. Audiences were great. Loved the storytelling. I always get a thrill and love doing something new each time. Relating to them as though they were the very first to see the show.
