I have been performing, directing, and creating theatre since I was a child. Once I decided I couldn’t be an astronaut because I got motion sick too easily, I decided I could at least pretend to be one on the stage.
I studied acting and theatre creation at Young People’s Theatre in Toronto and later graduated from York University with a Fine Arts degree in theatre, having studied acting, directing, playwriting, and theatre history.
I ran my own theatre company in Toronto for several years before moving to Japan, where I have settled permanently. Since late 2006, I have been the Artistic Director of the Yokohama Theatre Group, where I have continued to make theatre. I have a broad theatrical skill-set, and if you’re looking for someone to head a theatrical project in Japan, I’m probably your guy. While I’m a jack-of-all trades, I have tried to pick apart my skills into four major categories, but my strength is in bringing all these elements together and managing a creative team.
