I've been studying drama for 15 years, including completing a Bachelor of Arts, Majoring in Theatre Studies from York University in Toronto, Canada. I've been teaching drama and working with drama students for 5+ years. I've also built sets and performed in several productions including Into the Woods, a Midsummer Night's Dream and several original devised theatre productions. I've also worked as a dramaturg helping playwrights develop their scripts for stage and podcast productions.
