I have been a Resident Playwright at the City of Toronto Museums since 2009 and have been focused on creating historical adaptations of Toronto stories. Recently I have moved onto a more personal piece "Everything But the Cat..." which is a one-woman show dealing with bereavement of a suicidal loss.
Thoughts about art and community:
I want to help build community through storytelling and confessional theatre, much like the exploration for my "Everything But the Cat..." story - I want to spread the message of mental health awareness through theatre and drama to help Toronto youth understand they are never alone. I want to end the silence on depression and anxiety and create a safe environment to be creative and honest. I want to share my story and by doing so encourage others to do the same.
