I am passionate about my Wiradjuri (Aboriginal) culture and enjoy encouraging participants to join in with my storytelling as I demonstrate how Wiradjuri people used to hunt and find food. I use real artefacts as well as animal masks and perform to people of all ages.

In my peformances children become emus, kangaroos and hunters as they learn about traditional Aboriginal culture. I have presented at schools, museums, libraries and festivals.

All ages but particularly children and family audiences
