writer & theatre artist
(She/her) I am a theatre artist, writer, educator and creative consultant, helping people tell their stories and connect to their authentic voice.
With a practice rooted in the project-specific exploration of form and process, my work explores collaboration, 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 teach Voice & Speech at the Centre for Indigenous Theatre and George Brown School of Media & Performing Arts, and have facilitated workshops with over a dozen organizations across Turtle Island. While based on Coast Salish Land, 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 on Treaty 13 Territory (in what is colonially known as Toronto) with my young daughter.
Thank you for being here. I hope you say hello!
