Update: 10 Jan 2015 Training

Welcome to my site! I am a Singaporean storyteller who mostly shares traditional Asian stories in a dynamic and entertaining style.  

In this upgraded version of my website I’ve provided

My own telling draws on my experience as  a drama teacher, performing improvised comedy, devising visual theatre with the hearing-impaired, and my love of poetry.

I look forward to being of service to you - as a teller, trainer or resource - whenever you need a story to inform, inspire or celebrate your community or organisation.

In memory of my father


Born and bred in Brecon, South Wales, he joined the RAF at 16 and served until
his retirement as a
Flight Sergeant at 55.
He brought the first jets to Tengah (Singapore) in 1949.
I was born here while he was serving in Burma (1952-55). He was stationed at Seletar (1960-63) working on the single and twin Pioneer aircraft, and saw action during the konfrontasi in Labuan.

He came to live here in 2000 following the death of my mother, and was actively involved with The Glowers Drama Group in its early days.
