I have been a professional arts educator for twenty years, telling traditional stories, myths, and legends from cultures around the world.  I work with students in grades K-9 to enhance learning in Language Arts and Social Studies. 

In small group workshops, large assemblies, and residencies, my format and content are both very flexible. I adapt my programs to meet the unique needs of each school.

The stories I tell are rich with vivid imagery and compelling characters.   I carefully choose stories that are appropriate to the age and interests of each audience. My goal in every performance is the complete engagement of each listener.
 
In the classroom, I am both a performer and an educator.  My programs support Language Arts and Social Studies in the Common Core Curricula, referencing the frameworks and standards relevant to each grade.

I am a roster artist with the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, and an arts partner with BOCES and the New York State Council for the Arts.
