I'm very excited to announce I will be performing in Cockroach (a devised piece) for Hamilton's Supercrawl 2017!! The play runs at around 10 minutes long and will be performed multiple times that day. It was created under the guidance and direction of playwright, Radha Menon, who I had the pleasure of meeting while in the artistic training program at Factory Theatre. See you in Hamilton Sept 9th!!! More details to be posted soon :)

A man stands on a seventh-storey building ledge and contemplates suicide. Before he can get too far, he is confronted by the self-absorbed (and oftentimes absurd) people who live inside the building. In 7 Stories, multi award winning Canadian playwright, Morris Panych, creates a meta-theatrical gem of a black comedy; full of fanciful characters with a wistfully existential conclusion.

HUGE NEWS! Be Right Back the short film got into the Atlantic Film Fest in Halifax. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. Literally we shot this in March. AH! Huge big ups to the cast and AMAZING crew!!!
Last year I had the honour of understudying for the female cast of Second City's Education Company. This year I'm excited to announce that I'm part of the cast! For realzies and not just when someone is sick! I'm thrilled to be working with so many talented people and an amazing director. Shows start in October and 'till then I'll be practising the delivery of the line, "Tom, our son is not a dud!" Suggestions welcome.
After editing draft after draft, waking up at 2am to add something to my ongoing "to do" list, sorting out schedules, shooting it (that part was fun), editing and sitting with our sound mixer to find the perfect owl hoot, Be Right Back the short film is finally finished!
We've started to submit it to festivals so fingers crossed someone out there thinks it's cool! And enjoys the owl hoot we finally chose.
For now. Some fun stills? Yes pls!
