I have worn many hats in my life: library technician, social historian, freelance journalist and writer, television and radio pundit to name but some.
I trained as a storyteller through the Toronto District School Board and Toronto Public Library. I have performed as part of various events such as Strange Sisters, Mayworks, and Raconteurs, as well as at Nathan Phillips Square and Metro Hall. I built two puppet shows for Toronto Public Library and performed as a puppeteer with Poculi Ludique Societas. I was a member for the Society for Creative Anachronism for many years.
I have been singing for over 30 years: jazz, folk, blues, torch, 16th century music, and middle eastern song for belly dancers. I also am a dancer with knowledge of Ballroom, Latin and Swing. Currently, I am on the Executive of the Toronto Swing Dance Society.
