Professional actor with two decades of experience working in film, theatre and television and four years of experience coaching and teaching performers.

Education / Certificates

Graduate of the Canadian Film Centre Actor's Conservatory and the Centre for Actor Training at Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox, Massachusetts. I have trained with internationally revered teachers including Kristin Linklater, Larry Moss and Lindy Davies. I studied Gender and Film Theory at the University of Toronto and I am a trained life and wellness coach, currently a candidate for ICF certification.

Professional Experience

I am a professional actor with over thirty IMDb credits. For the past five years I have been coaching and mentoring actors building careers in film, television and theatre. I work with everyone! From recent theatre school grads building careers to teens auditioning for programs to kids who want to explore and have fun. This past summer I ran a drama camp for five kids who wrote, shot and edited their own movie!

Teaching Approach

I have been a working actor since I was ten years old. Whether working with beginners or advanced students, I facilitate a safe space for taking creative risks and making discoveries. My personal values of compassion, curiosity and respect deeply inform the way I approach my work. I combine my experience as a performer with years of acting training and my training as a life, wellness and confidence coach.

With my beginner students, I emphasize the importance of exploration, self expression, play and discovery while introducing the fundamentals of performance and story.

I work with my advanced students on smart preparation, emotional availability, cultivating presence, building confidence and creating compelling characters.
