WHAT'S GOING ON!
Wanting to learn how to fall, punch or push someone onstage safely? Have a show or project that asks for choreographed violence? I can help you with that and so much more!
I am certified as an Advanced Actor Combatant and Teacher Apprentice with Fight Directors Canada along with many years of movement and martial training. I have experience in many different weapons from fencing to armed martial arts.
I work as both a performer and choreographer of designed violence for both stage and screen. Want to see some of my work, check out my Action Reel!
I am now taking bookings for the coming season and summer!
Take a peek at my Booking Page for availability and pricing. If you have any questions about rates or profit sharing for your indie project don't hesitate to contact me directly! I am always happy to collaborate!
Playwriting and Creative Creation
This a new artistic endevour for me and I am super excited to be starting the journey into creating my own work! I was super lucky to have my first playwriting experience working with Concrete Theatre's Sprouts Festival this spring, where my short play Keiko and the Kappa was workshopped by some pretty amazing artists!
