Ours is a life of language. The words we choose to tell one another and ourselves have the ability to change our entire view on the world.
To conjure feeling… meaningful connections… shared purpose…
Since 2022 I’ve been hosting a series of campfire excursions on the Cornish coast to bring the oral tradition to small communities, led by story, myth and nature. Find out more at www.recallingfire.com.
It all starts with purpose.
I’ve been helping people and organisations find the language of their purpose for 12 years.
And since my little family was dealt a killer blow in 2019, I’ve learned to find the depth in hard times, making heartfelt and authentic connections between people.
If you have a meaningful purpose, I can do the same for you.
If you’re not sure about your purpose, that’s where campfire comes in…
Inner or outer work?
I work with purposeful individuals and organisations.
There are two strands we could follow…
- Find your purpose: What is the message? If you want to answer a call within yourself or your organisation, this is a time for us to explore. Leaning on my experience of oral storytelling and 10+ years of comms I’ll help you ‘echolocate’ your story. Poetry, spoken word, stories, wild walks and big open skies to go along with our work of the heart.
- Find your language: How can we capture the message? I can help you weave coherence in the stories representing you and what you really care about. If you want to galvanise a movement, spread hope or celebrate, we can work together to put stories to the page and the lens. Keynotes, hosting, videos, podcasts. I’m happiest at campfires, but conference halls, festivals and recording studios will do too.
A little bit of history.
I am an oral storyteller and wild walker. But I’ve found other gifts on the road that led us both here…
Facilitator. Workshops (The Bio-Leadership Project, Future Leaders Network, Speak Out, What If with Simon Cohen).
Brand writer. Copy and content, brand writing, development and guidelines (Digitas, Havas, Vision Nine, Stranger Collective, The Bio-Leadership Project, Simon Cohen).
Creative writer. Poetry, creative features and short stories (The Wildlife Trusts, Bloomsbury Festival, Imperial War Museums, Ernest Journal).
Spoken word artist. Poet, narrator, storyteller (BBC Radio, Cornwall Space Port and Virgin Orbit, Blystra Arts, Recalling Fire).
All of my skills are available when we work together and we’ll hone in on the best ones to serve your purpose.
Full disclosure: I prefer it when we share a point of view.
The professional storyteller.
International organisations trust my ‘eye’.
Applying my creativity to brand, I’ve stirred up movements to challenge the cimate crisis and campaigns helping entrepreneurs to find their purpose.
I’ve been lucky to have my head in industries and geographies all over the world… and every person, oganisation and campaign with texture and verve has had one thing in common: interesting stories told well.

I love to know the important things – that’s you, your partner, your purpose, your place, your values, your audience – so let’s pick up the phone before things go any further..
I’m not always free to take on new projects, so if there’s something on the distant horizon get in touch now.
