I am a writer, dramaturg, theatre creator, and educator based in Toronto, Canada.

I'm currently completing doctoral studies at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto. My dissertation is called The Shock and Awe of the Real: Political Performance and the War on Terror. It's a transnational study of theatre, live art, direct action protests, and new media installations I look at how artists have incorporated aspects of the real world into their work as a way to critique the recent conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond.

My work is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
