Hi! I'm Rachael. 
& I'm so glad you're here.

I'm a professional storyteller who presents imagination expanding, community centered folktale and personal narrative performances and workshops for all ages in theater/arts spaces, museums, festivals, community groups, schools, and as a guest lecturer at Rutgers University.

After graduating from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Art Education, I became a published illustrator and middle school art teacher. I then discovered a love of improv and sketch comedy acting, writing, and directing-- which is when my librarian mother encouraged me to explore storytelling.

She now spends her days creating and collaborating on storytelling, story-making, and story-training projects.
