ABOUT ME

I am a writer, dramaturg, theatre creator, and educator working in T'karonto, the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. 

I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow 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 digital media installations about the recent conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond. I'm currently Project Manager of Gatherings Archival and Oral Histories of Performance and Project Supervisor of “Quarantine Performance: Global Responses to COVID-19 in the Performing Arts.”. I teach in the Department of English and Drama at the University of Toronto Mississauga. I also run a small theatre company called the Blacklist Committee for Unsafe Theatre and consult as a dramaturg in the Toronto theatre and performance community.
