(She/her) I am a writer, theatre artist, educator and creative consultant, helping people tell their stories.
With a practice rooted in the project-specific exploration of form and process, my work explores family, place, the self, and the climate crisis. I am curious about how we might centre care and connection in both creation and performance.
A graduate of the BFA Acting Conservatory at York University, I have an MFA in Theatre and Creative Writing from The University of British Columbia. With collaborator Lou Jurgens, I ran the artist driven performance company the blood projects. We made immersive and site-specific performances in intimate spaces. I have trained and worked with companies like Soulpepper, Jumblies, Convergence Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille, Theatre Gargantua, One Yellow Rabbit, SummerWorks, and PTC.
I currently co-teach Voice at the Centre for Indigenous Theatre, and have facilitated workshops with Shakespeare In Action, Pleiades Theatre, The Toronto Public Library, The Toronto District School Board, The Vancouver School Board, The University of British Columbia, Opus Academy, and New Shoots. While based on Coast Salish Land (in Vancouver), I produced two seasons of Brave New Play Rites, and was the Program Assistant of the LEAP Playwriting Intensive at the Arts Club.
Presently working on a play about what it is to become a parent in the Anthropocene, I live in Toronto with my young daughter.
Thank you for being here. I hope you say hello!
