Almost Cuban, that is my nickname in Havana. I have an ongoing love for this vibrant and special island since my first trip to the Emerald Isle, in 1990. Over the ensuing years I had the privilege to perform in the Grand Teatro as part of the Primavera International Storytelling Festival and even had had my photo published in The Granma newspaper on the same page as ´Reflections´ of President Fidel Castro.
Through my involvement with local theatre, Spanish language and dance I have immersed myself in the culture that has taught me so much about life and a way of being in the world that is opposite to my home in Vancouver, BC Canada.
I am honoured to share this experience with you and to bring you into contact with my friends and colleagues who will welcome you with typical Cuban open arms.
