People often remark that "I was born in the right place". Until I left for school in 2012, I only begin to learn what that really meant. Stratford is just not where I was born, grew up and crafted my love for theatre. Stratford is where I learned how to take myself from being a theatre patron to an Executive Director and a Theatre Producer. 


But how do you become such a person by the age of 27? Well, you take yourself and plunge your life and live and breathe theatre every moment of the day the industry has to offer you. From Stratford to Toronto to New York City, I've learned from the best, the brightest and the most unlikely of people. It's the most unlikely people whom I have found became the ones who gave me the foundation to build Strictly Stratford Productions and The Coach. They let my imagination run wild and let sparks fly.
