Any day at any time
EducationI am a graduate of the Foundation Year Programme at the University of King's College, where I received the top-grade (4.3/4.3) for the final oral exam. I then went on to complete a combined honors in English and Contemporary Studies at King's/Dalhousie (2011). I have a Masters of Fine Arts in Dramatic Writing (with Distinction) (The Chair's Award for Excellence) (3.9 GPA) from Tisch School of the Arts (2015, NYU). At NYU I studied American and British classics of play, cinema, and television. Additionally, I participated in small playwriting/tv/screenwriting workshops led by acclaimed writers Suzan-Lori Parks, Annie Baker, Eduardo Machado, Charlie Rubin, and Daniel Goldfarb. I have worked in Federal Government as a strategist for UN Peace Ambassador Nadia Murad.
ExperienceI love education and the power of sharing knowledge. Educating others makes me a better storyteller and a better person. I had the joy of experiencing one year of TA-ing for Liz Bradley (past CEO of the Hummingbird Center). The class was at NYU. It was a producing class where we brought in arts leaders from all over the world. As Liz's TA I was entrusted with marking all of the written materials and providing one-on-one instruction for essay/exam prep. I want to continue this kind of assistance for students in the Toronto area. I have tutored in Toronto for one year. I tutored students in elementary, high school, and undergrad. As a writer I believe the best way for me to get better is to share knowledge with others. I have been fortunate to receive two productions already (Neptune Theatre, The Theatre Centre), as well as international/national nominations/awards (Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2014-15 Nomination, Open Spaces 2013 Prize Winner). As a result, I have acquired representation in Toronto from a major agent/agency. I believe tutoring is the best way to share my time as my career takes off.
HobbiesI am a very physically active person. I adore running eight miles a week and a regular yoga practice. To clear my mind I go on long walks or visit a gallery, I am very excited to explore the AGO and other smaller spaces around the city. I also love creating in all ways, so the best way for me to do that everyday is through cooking. I love cooking for people and enjoy an ayurvedic/french way of preparing food. When I'm not focused on a script I love to read fiction/poetry/non-fiction. I always try to absorb new knowledge every week.
