Professional Storytelling & Folklore

Since the dawn of time, humanity has been enthralled by tales and legends told around the fire. From the myths of the earliest shamans, to Homer’s Greek heroes, the Brothers Grimm, and even modern children’s programming, the storytelling arts have always enticed the young and old alike, and I work to keep this fundamental human joy alive and well into the 21st century.

Storytelling is not simply reading aloud; it is capturing the voice of a text and expressing it with the full weight and breadth of the complex emotions housed within those words. I help bring tales to life and create a complete sensory experience through the incorporation of performances and music, regaling crowds of all ages and varieties with spellbinding detail.

From elementary schools, camps and libraries to professional conferences and art exhibits, I work to craft an unforgettable performance that will bring texts to life.
