Over February and March of 2019, I created multiple animations for the stage production of She Kills Monsters at Neptune Theatre. It was a wonderful experience and a pleasure to work with director Richie Wilcox.
She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Over the past couple years, Instagram has become a place where I turn all my puns and silly thoughts into doodles. This is a selection of some of my favourites.

In 2018, I was contacted by filmmaker and director Jackie Torrens to animate a segment of her feature film Radical Age.
Who says rebellion, activism and self-expression are the exclusive domain of youth? In Radical Age we meet six so-called seniors who have no interest in trudging the status quo path.
I was approached to create animations for a production of Stage Door at Dalhousie University in 2017.
Terry Randall, rich society beauty, has decided to see if she can break into the Broadway theatre scene without her family connections. She goes to live in a theatrical boarding house and finds her life caught up with those of the other inmates and the ever-present disappointment that theatrical hopefuls must live with. Her smart-mouth roommate, Jean, is approached by a powerful producer for more than just a role. And Terry's father has decided to give her career the shove by backing a production for her to star in, in which she's sure to flop. But his machinations hurt more than just Terry.
For some, engaging in a creative process offers the opportunity to shift internal energy and attend to distress. In The Composer, Tom is launched into the magical world of a musical score. He meets a quirky little eighth note who helps him find the inspiration he needs to move on.
A witty boomerang takes a pun too far...literally.
