    About me

    Hi! I guess... I'm what you would call a character actor. I do everything from nerd, to evil guy to drag queen.

    I have also gone to too much school. I graduated Queen's University in Drama (with a minor in singing... yeah, I sing...) in 2008. And then got the opportunity to train at the National Theatre School of Canada, so I did that until until I graduated in 2011. And then I came to Toronto, and recently did that whole Improv program at the Second City Training Centre.

    My most cool credits are a somewhat recurring character on Murdoch Mysteries, and a lead role in a National touring production about the first prime minister of Canada, Sir John A (I was John A...) I've actually played John A a lot... too many times? Maybe.

    Anyways, I'm all right, I guess. Hire me!
