Claire has always been passionate about stories. As a child she enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table or by the fire listening to her family talk about WWI, WWII, playing in bomb craters, carrying musical instruments across fields to perform gigs, leaving home at 14 to move to London, not to mention successfully outrunning a charging bull! At the weekends or during vacation time she’d visit ancient homes and Gardens in England and learn about the long dead occupants and their ghosts….!
More recently she has enjoyed listening to live storytelling shows such as The Moth and regularly attended a Naperville home based storytelling group. In 2016, she further developed her passion for live storytelling by co-founding the successful First Person Live.
With the creation of Naperville’s newest storytelling show, The People Tree, Claire is looking to identify and organically develop home grown talent, through the monthly workshops.
