With the completion of a BA in Performing Arts at an American liberal arts college, my career began as a Jazz Dancer in Montreal. With 6 years of professional experience I established myself as a Choreographer and worked for another 3 years as such, complementing my income as a Dance Instructor at three Montreal dance studios. I then moved into fashion, as a Model, with representation in two cities and later Co-produced Fashion Shows for 4 Montreal fashion show production companies over a 5-year period. With talent agent representation in both Montreal and Toronto (later adding an agent in Vancouver) I played in over 100 TV Commercials, eventually moving into dramatic roles in over 70 films, television series, MOW's and established myself as a Stunt Performer with now over 40-plus contracts on my stunt resume and have since had great success serving as Production Manager and Executive Producer for two large benefit productions.
I have honed my skills and ‘found my voice’ as an amiable, informative, energetic Host ‘Personality’ in myriad different live entertainment events as well as myriad non-entertainment public speaking situations.
