I’m an actor, playwright, and producer dramaturg based on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish people, also known as Vancouver BC. I drink too much coffee, love animals and pho (separately), and love to contribute to my community in any way I can. I make jokes, earnestly celebrate others, and sometimes passionately monologue on twitter. I make plays with my friends at Delinquent Theatre.
This year I’m Interim Interim Artistic Director at Neworld Theatre (no, that’s not a typo) and Playwright in Residence at Tarragon Theatre. I’ll be performing in the East Van Panto with Theatre Replacement at The Cultch, Yoga Play at Gateway Theatre, Marine Life with Ruby Slippers Theatre at the Firehall Arts Centre, and premiering a new work, Never The Last, co-created and performed with Molly MacKinnon through Delinquent Theatre.
