I'm Hans Christian Andersen (75 minutes straight through)
This show tears the Disney-sugarcoating from Andersen's stories, weaving between his not-so-conventional life, the stories he stitched his experiences into, and our own modern obsessions with living 'happily ever after'.
The show has received glowing reviews in the national press, and has toured in theatres and storytelling clubs across the UK and Australia. It has also featured at Brighton Festival, BBC Radio 3, and SkyArts' Book Show.

Performance Poetry / Spoken Word Sets (8-60 minutes)
I've performed poetry sets at Shakespeare & Company (Paris); Nuyorican Poets Café (New York); Burning Man Festival (Nevada); Latitude (UK) and UK venues including the Saison Poetry Library, The Southbank Centre, The Barbican and for much-loved performance nights across the UK

Broken Hearts and Unbound Dreams (60-90 minutes, interval as required)
An ever-expanding collection of world tales and story ballads, many shared with me by my London neighbours who come from every corner of the Globe. Marked by strong women, unexpected endings and the universal desire to change or learn how to respond to that which is beyond our control.
