As a Canadian gal with nearly a decade in NYC under my belt, I’ve found there’s no greater combination than efficiency and good manners. So first of all, thank you for stopping by! And now, a little about me, in brief:

I’ve always been passionate about telling stories—whether that be as an actor, a writer, or a director working with students. Our job as storytellers is to build empathy, and I really believe, without irony or pride, that empathy is the thing that will save us all.

I’ve worked in regional theaters across the US and Canada, and my solo play, My High-Heeled Life, premiered in New York in 2014 after touring Toronto, Vancouver and Salem, Oregon. I love traveling—whether for work or play—and whenever I’m in a new place, I’m as interested in the grocery stores as I am in the museums. No, really. Grocery stores and markets are a bit of an obsession.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, and spent time in Toronto, Berkeley, and Seattle before landing in Manhattan. I miss the ocean, but I love the city, even (especially?) on the days it drives me crazy.

I love classic films, and listen to far too many podcasts.
