Born and raised in St. John's, Newfoundland, I learned about the value and importance of art and hard work, thanks to my two supportive parents.
I started my career as an international award-winning concert pianist, performing at Carnegie Hall at the age of 16. Four years later, I decided I wanted to pursue acting.
As an actor, I've been lucky enough to perform in over 75 productions for theatre and film, including shows on Broadway, at the Stratford Festival, at the National Arts Centre, and at several Canadian and U.S. regional theatres.
As a musical director, I've worked on over thirty productions, including the World Premieres of Alan Menken and David Spencer's The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, and The Hockey Sweater (for which I also wrote the music and co-wrote the lyrics), as well as the Canadian premieres of Fun Home, and The Light in the Piazza.
As a vocal coach, I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the world's most talented performers. My understanding of music, lyrics, and performance, combined with my experience on many casting panels have given my clients a fresh, unique perspective on how to approach a piece of musical theatre - be it for a show, an audition, or just for fun.
