About & Contact

Hi.

 

So Here's Me

I went to an arts high school, Canterbury in Ottawa, for drama and was on the Canadian Improv Games team "BOFA" for two years, winning two gold medals and one bronze. At the same time, I was the go-to host for everything from assemblies to coffee houses and appeared in dozens of student productions. After graduation I played Hamlet and toured the national Fringe circuit.

I am a proud theatre school drop-out and self-made improv performer, director, and teacher. I have written many plays and screenplays. My most famous work is Spank: The 50 Shades of Grey Parody which has toured internationally, been translated into Polish, and was once protested by the Westboro Baptist Church.

NOW Magazine named me one of the their 10 Artists to Watch in 2016. That same year I produced, directed, and starred in True Blue, an improvised dramatic police procedural, which played to sold-out houses and critical acclaim at the Toronto Fringe. I also performed in my fourth collaboration with Dora-award winning playwright Kat Sandler, Bright Lights, which was also a Fringe sensation that year. The following year I was hired by The Second City Toronto to be a member of their mainstage cast, where I created and starred in two shows.

I am now working as a freelance writer, creating articles both funny and intelligent for online and print magazines. I'm still teaching and traveling and always writing. You should hire me. I'm really good at what I do.
