Hello! I’m Kevin, a Toronto-based theatre creator, actor, director, musician, producer and environmentalist. I’m the co-founder and Artistic Director of Broadleaf Theatre, a company merges environmentalism and theatre. In 2016 I graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours BA in Theatre Performance and International Relations and was a graduate of Generator‘s inaugural Artist Producer Training Program. As an arts administrator I am the Outreach Coordinator at Cahoots Theatre and the Associate Producer for the music theatre company Music Picnic. I am also the Creative Producer of rePLAY: Rapid Response Art and, this spring, I will be a youth arts facilitator with Cahoots Theatre, Kitchener-Waterloo Youth Theatre, and the Koffler Centre. I’ve also worked with companies like Carousel Players, Theatre Direct, Canadian Rep Youth Ensemble, and Mixed Company Theatre.
This summer my work The Chemical Valley Project will be seen across Ontario, British Columbia, and in Germany.
You can find my contact info below if you want to connect about my work, or if I might be able to help with yours.
