Calgary, Alberta, CA
I love to tell stories, it's my passion and my world. And what I love most is a challenge, give me a theme, a concept an emotion and then give me a second till a story springs to mind.
That is the best way to tell a tale.
Life needs breathed into the stories and with each new telling they take flight and form.
I've told stories in a wealth of locations from libraries, schools, community centers, public houses, theaters, festivals, the streets, in distant lands and even in ancient Redwood Forests and loved ever minute of ever experience.
I was born and raised in Ayrshire in the heart of Burns country growing up surrounded by the stories from this rich and beautiful area. And like the Bard I moved to Edinburgh (not on the back of a donkey but in a Fiat Panda....I reckon he had a smoother ride) to develop as a professional Storyteller and Tour Guide, becoming a regular contributor at such nights as Cafe Voices and The Guid Crack.
And that wasn't enough. Early in my career I formed The Burgh Blatherers Group, a development group for new and up and coming storytellers in Edinburgh. The idea was to give the opportunity to test out stories and build confidence telling to groups of people. This group I am happy to say is still running and although I have handed over the running of it, due to a busy schedule and travel, I am still a member and attend meetings whenever possible.
These days you can find me telling out of Calgary, Alberta all the way over in Canada where I perform at Fringes and local historical events.
Scottish and Irish folk tales and legends, Norse and Greek myths, tales from Europe, Asia, America are just some of the stories I love to tell.
