What ‘hood are you in?

I’m living right in the centre of downtown Toronto, close to my school close to the AGO, close to everything! I like the feeling of being alone in all the commotion.

What do you do?

I love making art. I often paint, write music, take pictures and read scripts, but most of the time I’m watching movies with my friends. Or going on destination-less walks!

What are you currently working on? 

I recently finished a feature film shot in Montreal called Thicker Than Water and am currently filming season 3 of Global’s “Mary Kills People”! Excited for all to see, but spoilers of course ?

Where can we find your work?

Level 16, a film that I am very proud of that is directed by the wonderful Danish Esterhazy is making it’s Canada-wide theatrical release on March 15th! Available on Video On Demand and iTunes after that. Check it out in select theatres! You can watch Mary Kills People on Global TV, Lifetime and Hulu. Another recent film of mine called Believe Me; The Abduction of Lisa Mcvey is being played on Lifetime and of course, I’m sure every other thing can be found online if you’re interested!
