About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to learn, experience, share and grow by lettin' the good times roll

ABOUT ME

i am in my last year of school in montreal, studying theatre performance as well as auditioning for shows around the city and country. i grew up on vancouver island and have moved around quite a bit but my family is currently in calgary. i love yoga, travelling and listening/playing music, but above all good company! i am a storyteller, i love learning about new cultures, trying new dishes, listening to new music & making new friends.

PHILOSOPHY

i believe in living in the moment - treating others as you would like to be treated (including all life!) - i usually go with the flow but i always follow my heart and try to see the best in situations and others.
