​​​​​​​​Theatre Artist &  Arts Educator


I'm an independent Montreal based playwright, director and arts educator working at the intersection of performing arts and education.

Currently, I'm developing a new play with support from the  Playwrights Guild of Canada  in collaboration withTeesri Duniya Theatre .  I recently completed writing the third instalment of  the Live Action Theatre Project: ​"Wake up Sleeping Beauty!" , an interactive performance for young audiences which premiered as part of the  Centaur Children's Series  with performances at the SpringWorks Festival in Stratford, Ontario, the TA DA Festival  in Wakefield, QC and  Hudson Village Theatre.​ Upcoming performances and workshops will take place at the Arts Alive Festival in Point Claire, and the Kirkland Public Library in autumn 2017.

I o​ffer the following services: ​                  

  • Script writing 

  • Narrative design

  • ​Arts & culture coverage ​​​

  • ​Study guides and lesson plans

  • ​Teaching  & coaching (workshops, ongoing classes)

To see samples of my work, view the audience guides for the  Segal Theatre 2015-2016 Season (and upcoming 2016-2017 season), The Centaur Theatre and interactive narrative for teens, Zora, connected with ethics themes.​​
