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 hope I can be of service to you as a performer, trainer or resource when you need a story.
