Historical performer/writer

 Interpreter, writer, director, performer

I strive to provide a unique and innovative theatrical experience to an audience offering them the option of becoming active participators. This way, they  learn about the past in a fun and entertaining manner, bringing history to life and providing a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people who built our Province and our country. The stories of our ancestors and  First Nations people are the true stories about how British Columbia was born I find  most fascinating. We needn’t look far to find some impressive experiences and intriguing characters that pioneered our land.
