Creating & Performing
Brings me Joy!
First thing’s First…
IMPROV AND THEATRE!
I discovered a love for performing early. Very early. I grew up singing Broadway showtunes before I could form full sentences. With that love of performance came a life-long love affair with theatre, especially musical theatre. I have been performing for over 15 years in varying capacities, with some of my favourite roles being Kate Monster in Avenue Q, Hamlet in Hamlet, Marta in Company, and Robin in Godspell.
Then I discovered Improv and I was hooked. I hold a special place for it in my heart and work to bring it’s deep elements of joy and play to everything I do. Performing Improv is the closest thing I’ve ever experienced to true magic. I play in a number of troupes including The Understudies and Executive Indecision. While playing with The Understudies, we performed 4 sold-out runs at the Hamilton Fringe and performed monthly in Hamilton and Toronto.
I also have been teaching Improv for over seven years all over Ontario. One of my best memories was being selected for the prestigious Bad Dog Comedy Short-Form Conservatory.
Below you’ll find a small selection of images, reviews and posters from my past productions in both theatre and improv.

THEATRE PRODUCTIONS | WRITTEN & DIRECTED
If there’s anything that rivals my love of performing, it’s directing and writing! I’ve been secretly writing productions, short stories, poems and sketches for as long as I can remember, but there have been a few I’ve felt comfortable enough to share with the world. There’s something so special about watching other folks read your words or perform the shows you’ve only pictured in your head.
I genuinely love directing as well. Plays, audiobooks, podcasts, improv and sketch productions…whatever it is, I’ll direct it!
