I am a director, actor, dramaturg, and educator currently based in Calgary with my partner and two children. We consider ourselves dual citizens of both Toronto and Calgary. I have been working on Canadian stages for the past 24 years. I’ve won two Dora Mavor Moore Awards for performance, the 2014 Gina Wilkinson Prize and the 2016 Ken McDougall Award for Direction. I have directed the world premieres of The Horse and His Boy, Wilde Tales (Shaw Festival), Smoke (Downstage Theatre), Elle (Theatre Passe Muraille), and the Canadian workshop premiere of Susanna Fournier’s Antigone lives*.
I am a co-creator and performer in 7th Cousins: An Automythography which continues to tour nationally and internationally and was published this past year by Book*hug press. I am also the creator of Henry G20 a large-scale outdoor performance and contemporary adaptation of Henry V. I teach directing and acting in the School of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Calgary.
