Bio: I am a multifaceted theatre artist with a fierce fascination for the discarded, the misplaced, and the forgotten. These fascinations have driven me into a study of object-oriented performance and a unique practice of landscape poetics, junkyard theatrics and performative alchemy. My obsession is with puppets and the performative potential of unusual materials. ​I received a BFA in Multidisciplinary from the University of Lethbridge in 2010. Since then I have lived in Treaty 7 territory (Calgary, Alberta) where my practice has encompassed performance, scenic design, devised theatre, painting and puppetry. I am a Co-Founder of Mudfoot Theatre, an independent, interdisciplinary performance ensemble in Calgary, Alberta, as well as a Puppeteer with Bread and Puppet Theater in Glover, Vermont. I am currently pursuing my MFA in Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. Paralleling my creative practice, I navigate my life with a bicycle, a paddle and a pair of hiking boots. Wild space, landscape and weather continue to be my greatest teachers.
