I have a diverse and rich background in performance and teaching. I have created and told stories as a Performance Storyteller in the USA, Ireland and UK. What I learned as an Artist in Residence, Director and Actor working with diverse populations is how stories connect us to ourselves, each other, our history and help us envision our future.
I came to London to learn technique ‘from the best’ and pursue my theatrical dream. You teach what you want to learn and I taught and examined with LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) working in businesses when a ‘resting actor’ with advertising agencies and production houses; notably J Walter Thompson, The Really Useful Group, Imagination and the Education Team at Kew Gardens. I also discovered a vibrant storytelling community, The Crick Crack Club, and furthered my knowledge of what story could be and do.
Now I work as presentation & pitch coach based London. I work with start-ups in accelerators such as Wayra and TechStars as well as Entrepreneurs in growing and established businesses from Blooming Founders to Lambert Smith Hampton identifying the Business Story. I uncover the story behind the good idea, the business practice, the service, the product and enable you to weave your message through all of your communication with impact. Whether inspiring your team, standing out to clients or pitching to investors, the idea or innovation online or LIVE, I can help you stand out from the crowd and articulate your value, attracting the right people with a clear message and a great story.
