I was fascinated by storytelling and puppetry at an early age. As a child I saw all the great storytelling, theatre, and puppeteers: The Puppetmongers, Poculi Ludique Societas, and David Anderson of Clay and Paper Theatre.
I trained in storytelling and puppetry through the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and Toronto Public Library (TPL). In the 1990s, I wrote the scripts for two puppet shows still in use in TPL today : Tug of War and Ashung Meets a Ghost. I also, as part of the 1998 production of the York Cycle, performed with Poculi Ludique Societas where I was puppeteer and dancer.
Over the years I have told stories of my own life at the Transac Club (through Raconteurs), Buddies in Bad Times (through Mayworks Labour Festival), Nathan Phillips Square and , Metro Hall (through TPL) , the 519 and Now Magazine Lounge (through the Toronto Bisexual Network.
Currently, I work as a historical interpreter, specializing in Black history in Renaissance Europe and in WWII. In the latter, stories of my Grandmother and my family factor in greatly.
