Bio - 150 words

Tom Lee has told stories professionally for thirty years. His interest in traditional stories began while he was working as a cook in a tiny fishing village in Scotland. Tom's first storytelling performances were tales from Grimm, told in the the London pub theater called, appropriately, "The Man in the Moon."

In the United States, Tom has worked in classrooms with children of all ages. "When it comes to stories," he says, "children have taught me everything I know." Tom is roster artist with Arts for Learning, Connecticut and a frequent guest artist at the The Metropolitan Opera Education Conference, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Yale Center for British Art.

Tom was a featured teller at the 2014 National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee and returned in 2015 as teller-in-residence.

Tom Lee lives in Chester, Connecticut, where he cooks without fear and gardens overambitiously.
