I’m a playwright, performer, writing instructor, and occasional cartoonist. What ties my passions together? I love to create “aha” moments of shared insight and empathy between people. I particularly enjoy leveraging humour to challenge people’s perspectives on socio-political issues. I want to make you think and feel and come out unable to see things quite the same way as before.
I am a member of the Playwrights Guild of Canada. My training includes a Ph.D. (specializing in Canadian, Australian, and British drama), playwriting courses with Marcia Johnson and Beverly Cooper, drawing at the Toronto School of Art, and most recently, an acting master class with R.H. Thomson. For several years I was also a senior writing instructor at the University of Toronto.
