I’m an agile storyteller: a writer, an audiobook narrator, a geek. I’m used to be sort of regular on London’s spoken word scene reading other people’s stuff. Now I mostly record it.
I was born in South Africa, in a valley lovely beyond any singing of it. Hippie musicians dragged me from an idyllic childhood, running barefoot through rich and matted grass with my dog, Bartok, to vegetarian communes from California to India, via Lisbon, London and Findhorn. I picked up a wide range of authentic local accents and character voices along the way; I speak fluent Afrikaans, but I don’t claim to speak French any more.
I can’t play an instrument, but I like eating meat and telling stories. Here are a few extracts:
