What has been your favorite role?
I had a great time playing Karen Redwood on the APTN series Delmer and Marta. She was a greedy and conniving mega-executive in television. Sound familiar? SOLIDARITY WITH OUR SAG-AFTRA siblings!
What do you do when you are not performing?
I work in tech with the Edmonton body-based company Moment Discovery. Positioning the human presence as both audience and composer. Moment Discovery creates custom software and technology in designing for the virtual body, developing models and applications for body-activated media, and authoring tools for immersive settings and experiences. Simply put, we put the human body INSIDE technology.
What organization / activity are you involved with or passionate about that people would find interesting?
I am on the Board of Directors for CRIPSiE: Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers Society in Edmonton which is an Edmonton-based collective of artists that include people who experience disability and their allies.
What Director would you like to work with?
I’d love to work with Sarah Polley. I really admire her work and am grateful she’s committed to work/life balance when working on film sets which I believe is vital to moving forward in ways that can engage more people from many different life experiences.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
Over the past few years, I have been loving Reservation Dogs and cannot WAIT for the next season. The acting, in particular, is truly astonishing throughout the first
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
That performing isn’t magic, it’s hard (and rewarding) work and that if I work hard to understand the character (their wants, their needs, their tactics within their scenes) then the work will WORK.
