“…She also delved deftly into pop culture and, as her confidence in her voice and her physical humour grows, she’ll develop into a key Canadian stand-up.” – Exclaim!

“She” = me.

I do comedy, sometimes.

In 2015, I wrote for This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Before that, I won a handful of regional stand-up comedy contests and spent 6 months in Chicago, training at The Second City, the iO, The Annoyance Theatre, and the Chicago Improv Den. I’ve taken writing classes with Nate Herman and Michael McCarthy, both former writers for Saturday Night Live, as well as Scott Dikkers, co-founder of The Onion.  I performed at the Chicago Women’s Funny Fest, which led to a favourable review from The Chicago Tribune, and for two consecutive years at the Halifax Pop Explosion. I’ve opened for headliners Todd Barry, Aparna Nancherla, and Jen Kirkman. Other featured performances include the Halifax Comedy Fest, Women In Comedy Festival (Boston), and the SheDot Festival (Toronto).
