Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a bit about me. :)
If I go the creative route to describe myself - I’m a blend of an old soul, a silly song-bird, a driven lady boss, and a zap of electricity.
I’m all about being the boss of my career as an artist, creating my own work, sharing what I know, and collaborating with other movers and shakers in the performing arts and entertainment industries.
As a performing artist, I bring emotional honesty, comedic ability, and musicality to my work. I believe that my best work comes when I’m 100% connected to my body, when I have an experimental mindset and when I just simply ride the wave that’s there. From TV/film and commercials, to voice over, improv shows and theatre/musical theatre - I know how to listen, translate and adapt my skills to suit the project at hand. I’m have a multi-disciplinary approach to performance and am a huge nerd about “the process” and will forever be learning new skills and tools to grow as an artist.
One thing I am known for is my work in musical improvisation, or the art of improvising musical theatre. What? Yes! I am a pioneer in the art form here in Vancouver, and I have created, produced, and performed in numerous musical improv shows and festivals in Vancouver and New York City. Currently I’m working on a show called Inside Voices: A Musical in the Key of P that is all about giving the personas and judges in ourselves space to play (and sing).
I’m passionate about mindfulness, emotional wellness and healthy artistry. I firmly believe that cultivating these things - through strong healthy habits, routines and creative work systems - is paramount if you want to really step into doing powerful, creative work as a performer (and upping your feelings of fulfilment in your career). After all, YOU are your own instrument!
As a coach, I work with performers who are serious about working hard, who are willing to take creative risks and who want to grow to their next phase as artists. I’m an intuitive, energetic and focused teacher and I value creating safe, joyful spaces to work.
I love taking a vision and making it real. Whether that be making a character come to life, creating a show, collaborating with a performing arts group or developing a class - I have a special knack for transforming ideas into reality.
And finally, while I make art to shed light on humanity and the deep questions of the universe, I also do it for a very simple reason - to feel joy and connection. Because joy and connection is where it’s at.
