I am an experienced, versatile and passionate storyteller. I perform in schools (primary and secondary), museums and prisons. I have been invited to tell at the international storytelling festivals in Germany and Switzerland, the Transeuropa Festival, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and during the Glasgow Doors Open Days.
Through my work as a college lecturer, I have particular experience working with young adults with additional support needs, helping many of them with self-esteem, listening and concentration problems. For several years I was both the Glasgow Storytelling Fellow and the Secretary of the Highlands and Islands Storytellers, which organised the annual Skye Storytelling Festival.
I like to tell the myths and legends of Scotland and Germany, and also tales and stories with historic relevance to the local areas I visit. I am originally from Germany and happily settled in Scotland since 2002. I am passionate about the power of storytelling, having many times experienced the engagement of the audience with the stories during performances and projects. Some of us suspect the next crisis is just around the corner when we just got over the last one, so it is comforting to hear that even Snow White was poisoned three times before she could live happily ever after.
