As an independent, freelance performance artist, I've provided dynamic, participatory storytelling performances and led workshops, training sessions, projects and festivals in schools, early childhood centres and libraries throughout Queensland and New South Wales since 1987.

Since 1992, I've explored and developed the role of stories and storytelling in community cultural development and initiated and led many community projects based around stories, storytelling, print and web based publishing, and more recently digital storytelling.

My expertise in storytelling has led to my employment as a narrative and corporate storytelling consultant and community cultural development artsworker in schools, community, government and industry.
