Storytelling, performing, writing, publishing & facilitating

In 2014 I was encouraged to join the Princes Trust Explore Enterprise Program and was inspired to create something from start to finish. I've always had a love for storytelling and have found, through creating my own work, that I've a deep interest in how, through narrative, we can understand more about our own and others experiences and ideas. My aim is grow as a storyteller and to entertain and inspire others along the way. Stay Rare. Jo
