Storyteller, Storytelling Program Coordinator
I have been a professional international storyteller since 2006. I mostly tell traditional stories (folk tales, myths, legends) in Hungarian, English, and Spanish. I like to bring events in distant landscapes to Hungary, while I promote Hungarian tales in my foreign performances. I received my Master’s Degree in Storytelling at East Tennessee State University as a Fulbright scholarship recipient and received my PhD in Bowling Green State University’s Doctoral Program in Cultural Studies. My research areas were digital storytelling, role playing, and traditional fairy tales and pop culture. My book about international storytelling practice “Mesemondók márpedig vannak” (in English: “Storytellers do exist”) was published in 2016 at the publishing house Pont Kiadó.
I joined the Foundation in August 2017. I primarily deal with the training of the storyteller volunteers and the selection of story libraries and story collections. I find it important to ensure that our storytellers can bring children stories they truly and actually love.
