I’m an actor, playwright, producer 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 (separately), and love to contribute to my community in any way I can. I make jokes, celebrate the community, and sometimes passionately monologue on twitter. I make plays with my friends at Delinquent Theatre.
I’m currently playwright in residence at Tarragon Theatre. In July I had the honour of receiving a Jessie Award alongside my collaborator Molly MacKinnon for Outstanding Interdisciplinary Collaboration on Never The Last, and I’ve just returned from the Caravan Farm Theatre after a summer performing in The Coyotes. This fall I’m off to the Stratford Festival for their playwriting residency, and in the new year I will perform in a new premiere production from Electric Company Theatre.
