Writing, Teaching, Film, Acting, Life.

Currently, I am the founder and main teacher of I.O. Acting Studio in Montreal, since February, 2009.

I have been teaching since 1999 when, during my Master’s program at York University, I had the privilege of running an Acting For Non-Majors undergraduate class, as well as being a Theatre History Tutorial Leader for first-year acting students. I also taught for three years in the Dawson College Professional Theatre Department (Camera Acting, Theatre Performance, Theatre History, Text, Studio Production).


Since then, I have taught as a substitute at elementary and high schools in Montreal. As a contracted teacher, I ran classes at Trafalgar School for Girls (Secondary V Drama, Junior play) and the Cartier Centre (Secondary IV English).

As a workshop leader, I have held English classes for Japanese students (Cartier Centre), as well as drama classes for kids (Pointe-Claire Library) and for adults at McGill University and for the Quebec Drama Federation.

From its humble beginnings in 2009, I.O. (Inside/Outside) Acting Studio has been an important part of the Montreal performance community.

Anybody can benefit from an acting class! They are not only for people who want to be actors... they can help you with confidence in public-speaking, in expressing yourself, and in simply feeling great.

Classes are tailored to fit the unique needs of the participants.

I.O. Acting Studio is where I teach and work... now entering our tenth year!
