I am a playwright, director and facilitator based in Ottawa. I care about community, open and positive creative environments, and multidisciplinary work.
I love to facilitate empowering creative spaces for people to play and dialogue. I specialize in creating and facilitating workshops to fit the needs of specific groups. I love it when diverse people, artistic forms, and sectors come together to create something new.
Bridging different communities forms the basis of my community organizing work, and my parallel career in communications.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing with a playwriting focus from the University of Guelph, and a BFA in Theatre & Development from Concordia University. In 2018-2019 I was playwright-in-residence at the Great Canadian Theatre Company, and an artist-in-residence at the Ottawa Fringe’s undercurrents festival.
I am the Founder and Artistic Director of CSArt Ottawa, a social enterprise that connects local artists with local audiences through a subscription model. Over the past 3 years, CSArt Ottawa has produced 12 events and represented 10 local artists/artist groups of multiple disciplines.
