In the past couple years I’ve been fortunate to work with Cahoots Theatre, the Toronto Fringe, as the Associate Producer of Macau-Toronto music theatre company Music Picnic, as a devised creator with fu-Gen Asian Candian Theatre’s Interdisciplinary Kitchen XV, among other collaborations. I am also the co-founder and Creative Producer of rePLAY: Rapid Response Art and, was a youth arts facilitator with Cahoots Theatre, Kitchener-Waterloo Youth Theatre, and the Koffler Centre. As a performer I’ve worked with companies like Carousel Players, Theatre Direct, Canadian Rep Youth Ensemble, and Mixed Company Theatre, and perform intermittently as with the Yonge Guns Barbershop Quartet.
