A graduate of the Studio 58 theatre program a good while back, I had over the last few years, primarily focused on the passion projects of parenting three wonderful kids and co-founding an arts infused independent school in New Westminster called Urban Academy.
With my children now grown and Urban Academy well on its way, I am once again finding ways to step out onto the stage to share my passion for the performing arts and the powerful ways they impact the world around us.
I have also recently explored this through the format of Storytelling at The Flame, Vancouver , which has been wonderful experience and reinforced my belief in the power of story to transform. You can link to two of my stories here.
My early theatre career highlights included several tours in vans of British Columbia and the United States with Green Thumb Theatre for Young People in various shows including GUILTY SECRETS, SEE SAW and NEW CANADIAN KID, BACH TO THE FUTURE with Platypus Theatre ( a children’s show performed with the Vancouver and Toronto Symphonies), writing and performing PEANUTS (my one person show) for the Women in View Festival, as well performing at Sunshine and Richmond Gateway Theatres and several times at the Edmonton Fringe Festival.
I have also enjoyed working in film and television, appearing in various series such as THE MAN FROM THE HIGH CASTLE, RIVERDALE, TRAVELERS, FAIRLY LEGAL, HICCUPS, THE 4400, STARGATE and BEGGARS AND CHOOSERS, several commercials, as well as some anime and cartoon voice work over the years.
