Hi! I am a Singaporean storyteller – a member of the Merdeka generation (!),  I was born here to Welsh parents, grew up in Uk but returned in 1978 and have lived here ever since.          

A former drama teacher, I discovered storytelling in 1998 and started telling professionally soon after.

I founded the 398.2 Storytelling Festival in 2015  to showcase our local community of tellers, and through our work with Story Connection Ltd, which   
I co-direct with Jumaini  Ariff and Sheila Wee, have developed a story-based relationship with SG Enable, built around the annual Story Carnival@Enabling Village which celebrate diversity and the social model of disabilitiy.

Together with Sheila Wee and Jeeva Raghunath, I set up the Federation of Asian Storytellers (FEAST)  in 2018 to promote the art of oral tellers in Asia. I am actively involved in hosting its monthly webinar programme, as well as the publication of FEAST’s annual folktale anthology.

Access is an important issue for me and I am proud to be an active member of the Access Arts Hub.  I am also a trained Audio Describer providing the service for vision-impaired patrons who wish to attend live theatre, and through my work with my deaf story-partner, Gophi Nathan, celebrate the power and beauty of sign language.

I am also a popular audio-book narrator.  I have voice-over and audiobook gigs (services) available for booking on fiverr

Welcome to my world of story
