I started out as a street busker and am now among Canada's top Mime practitioners. I studied at the Marcel Marceau school in Paris before performing 100+ corporate and private events. I have performed mime to over 20,000 students, partnered with professional symphonies in Classical Music work, and tour with my award winning solo shows, 'Searching for Marceau' and 'Bulfinch's Mythology.' I have been accepted into Cirque du Soleil's performer roster. Looking forward to working with Cirque, deepening my solo mime shows through new works, and film. Click photo for more.
In addition to acting with Tottering Biped Theatre, I'm an Associate Artist with MT Space Theatre and Motus O Dance Theatre. I've performed at Theatre Passe Muraille, The Grand, Aquarius TA2, and Yukon Arts Centre Theatres; the IMPACT, Magnetic North, Rutas, Canoe, and Undercurrent Festivals; 12 Performing Arts Centres; and internationally in Dublin, Hannover, Tirana, Damascus, Beirut, Cairo, Alexandria, Tunis, Casablanca, Sharm El-Sheik, and Jordan. Looking forward to longer engagements, film and further touring work. Click photo for more.
I'm a former Latin/Ballroom dance competitor and instructor. In addition to performing and choreographing, I co-created/tour with a gender neutral partner dance approach, 'Liquid Leading,' which launched in a TED Talk with 800,000 views. My Dance and Mime expertise has led to Movement Coaching/ Choreographing for the Shaw Festival, CanStage/Studio 180, Irish Classical Theatre, and University Theatre programs. I'm also an avid Salsa clubber and I've danced in 17 countries and counting. Looking forward to coaching with more companies while expanding the Liquid Lead work to new audiences internationally.

I founded Tottering Biped Theatre and Shakespeare by Nature in Hamilton, Ontario. I direct original work, Shakespeare, and text based work with an eye to movement and image. As an Arts Advocate, I founded Burlington's Arts & Culture Council that brought about Burlington's first City funding for Artists. I am a former Arts Person of the Year in Burlington and Theatre Artist of the year in Hamilton. Looking forward to directing devised or text based work for additional companies and finding ways for local government to better support local artists. Click photo for more.
My original works have toured to many theatre festivals nationally and internationally. These pieces have won the Pat the Dog Playwright Festival, Theatre Aquarius' Brave New Works series, and the Cutting Edge Award at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Looking forward to finding more production and touring opportunities for my solo and larger ensemble plays. Click photo for more.
