Director & Arts Advocate

Looking Back....I founded Tottering Biped Theatre in 2009. I directed The Second Life which toured the IMPACT, Springworks, Theatre Aquarius TA2, and In the Soil Festivals. y production of The Santaland Diaries toured 6 Performing Arts Centres in Canada. I've directed for University programmes with Deadman's Cellphone and Men on Boats, and also began the Shakespeare at the Rock series in Hamilton, Ontario, directing A Midsummer Nights' Dream, Macbeth, and the Merchant of Venice; a series which has built to audiences of 2,000+ annually. As an Arts Advocate, I founded the Burlington Arts & Culture Council which brought that City's first funding programs for Artists. The Shakespeare work has aimed to be a significant source of early career employment for theatre artists in Hamilton, working to improve the local theatre ecology and make a professional life in theatre more possible in Hamilton.

TC Director A Midsummer Night's Dream

Promo shot from 'Midsummer Nights: A Dream' taken at the venue, the Royal Botanical Gardens. It took YEARS to get them to agree to stage the show. It came together in a brilliant rush and, despite the flying by the seat of our pants, it came together beautifully.
