      Faculty - Bachelor of Performing Arts

      My career has taken me from the shore of Nova Scotia to where I call home Vancouver. Studying at Ryerson University opened the doors for my career path. As an artist my canvas became theatre, film, television, dance, opera and live music in whatever role I could get work.  Theatres included The Stratford Festival, Canadian Stage, U of T Opera Program, and touring with Blue Rodeo to name a few musical acts.

      I was invited to work at Acadia University in Nova Scotia and was bitten by the teaching bug at a very young age.Over the years I have lived and or toured in Manitoba, Calgary and Saskatchewan. Vancouver has allowed me the privilege to teach at the University of British Columbia, work on the 2012 Olympic Games, The Arts Club Theatre, EKP productions, Pi Theatre, The Push Festival, Real Wheels, City Opera, Vancouver International Film Institute, Blackbird theatre…. privileged to be a part of the program.
