I’m an actor, playwright, and 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 (seperately), 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.
Here is my fancy, third-person bio and very serious headshot:
