Hi.
I'm a writer from Toronto, Canada. My work has traveled all over North America, to the UK, and to Europe.  I write plays, films, and television.
I've also written essays, poetry, audio pieces, and commercial spots.

I love what words can do and create. 
I am driven by curiosity and inspired by questions I can't resolve in my own mind - of which there are many.
I usually write comedy because the world is bizarre and being a human is weird. And I like laughter.  
Here, you'll find some of my work and information about upcoming projects. Feel free to get in touch. Thanks!

"A brash, poetic, and fiercely original voice."
