My interest is in various visual and audio storytelling forms that embrace the wide, wondrous spectrum of comedy and drama.
I love thinking big.
My values include equitable practices as well as safe and collaborative workspaces.
I celebrate diverse voices, and the wealth of what we have to offer.
We are just getting started.

How do you find your light, centrestage, when your motorized wheelchair might not fit in elevators, or doors, or be visible over high counters? “Don’t worry about it. I’m still OK down here,” she sighs, after every setback. “When will other folks catch up to my normal?” This show, she says poignantly, is “the start to my happily-ever-after….”
